In the spirit of the Neurocritical Care Program's e-newsletter namesake, we're delighted to introduce a new space to share research:  the Dendritic Spike Mini-Symposium. This program will showcase interdisciplinary clinical research collaborations in Neurosciences involving Neurocritical Care.

The first event took place on Tuesday, Jan. 20. Following an introduction by Dr. Holly Hinson, the Neuro ICU Associate Director of Clinical Research, trainees and junior faculty in the departments of Neurological Surgery, Neurology and Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine presented works in progress in subarachnoid hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, stroke, and more.  You can view a recording of the program here.
