Meetings and Conferences

NC NM4R Spinal Cord Plasticity in Motor Control Meeting

Charleston, SC–online | December 1 and 4, 2020

This online symposium will focus on the role of activity-dependent spinal cord plasticity in motor control and motor learning in health and disease. The topics addressed will include: spinal cord plasticity during motor learning and in response to trauma and disease; interactions between brain and spinal cord plasticity; physiological and anatomical mechanisms underlying spinal cord plasticity and its impact on behavior; induction and guidance of plasticity in spinal reflex pathways and in corticospinal connections; activity-dependent neuromuscular plasticity; therapeutic applications of spinal cord plasticity; and related subjects. 

Rehabilitation Research 2020: Envisioning a Functional Future

NIH Main Campus, Natcher Conference Center | October 15-16, 2020

This trans-NIH conference will highlight advances in rehabilitation research that have emerged since the 2016 Rehabilitation Research at NIH: Moving the Field Forward conference. This meeting also will help inform the revision of the congressionally mandated NIH Research Plan on Rehabilitation.

9th Annual International Symposium on Regenerative Rehabilitation

Austin, TX | November 4 through 6, 2021

This symposium  features renowned researchers and clinicians from around the world, focusing on the emerging field of Regenerative Rehabilitation. This innovative approach combines discoveries in tissue engineering and cellular therapies with rehabilitative treatments, resulting in improved functional outcomes for patients. This symposium encourages the participation of scientists, clinicians and physical therapists who are in the fields of regenerative medicine, engineering, physical medicine, rehabilitation and more. The symposium agenda is designed to create a platform for bridging these areas of expertise in a setting that fosters discussion, interaction, cross-discipline pollination and networking.
