The Neuromodulation Symposium is organized by the Institute for Engineering in Medicine (IEM) and MnDRIVE Brain Conditions. This year, neuromod will be joining forces with the 2nd Annual Neuromodulation for Spinal Cord Injury Conference!

In addition to focusing on the rapidly-growing field of neuromodulation, this joint symposium will also highlight the latest advancements and breakthroughs in spinal cord injury research and treatment. By merging these two vital areas of study, we aim to foster cross-disciplinary discussions and explore potential synergies between neuromodulation and spinal cord injury interventions.

This symposium is aimed at bringing together basic scientists, engineers, clinicians, industrial practitioners and entrepreneurs to discuss challenges and opportunities in neuromodulation. The symposium will consist of plenary presentations by leaders in academia, industry and government, and poster presentations to exchange ideas in this exciting field. The symposium, which is part of IEM Innovation Week, will be held immediately following the Design of Medical Devices Conference. We look forward to seeing you  on April 10th-12th, 2024.

Registration Coming Soon!
