OHSU Traumatic Brain Injury/Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Research Symposium: Research to Rehab
May 28, 2014 from  8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
CHH Conference Center (Room 4 on the 3rd Floor)

The Traumatic Brain Injury/Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Research to Rehab Symposium has been funded by an OHSU Research Collaborative Advancement Award and supported by the OHSU Brain Institute to promote the growth and collaboration of TBI/PTSD research at OHSU. The symposium will include presentations and posters from OHSU faculty, Portland VA Medical Center researchers, and local collaborators. Participants will have the opportunity to meet potential collaborators for future grant proposals. National experts in the field have been invited to offer guidance in developing our research programs and proposals.

The Symposium is free for OHSU, VA researchers and clinicians, and for invited non-OHSU research collaborators. If you’re interested, take a look at the agenda below and consider registering for the symposium.
