I’m impressed with the quality of the regional and local speakers, particularly the young clinicians and scientist. As compared to when I first arrived in Singapore, this is light year ahead in terms of the general understanding of expertise in medicine, and in science and biomedicine. It’s really quite thrilling.

Neuroscience Symposium II
Traumatic Brain Injury - The Translational Landscape of Interventions

 Track type: Symposium

Date: 22 Sep 2018


 Time: 1400 - 1530

Location: Academia, Level 2, PSL2

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is projected to become the leading worldwide cause of death and disability within the next five years. Disability due to TBI, either due to sudden loss of function or progressive decline secondary to neurodegeneration, significantly impacts upon the socio-economic burden. Yet, little is known about opportunities for intervention to modify trajectory of disease. The aim of this session is to discuss opportunities for intervention and the role of various promising multi-modal strategies within the spectrum of intervention for TBI.
