Seminar for Neurotrauma and Diseases, sponsored by Plexon Neurotechnology Systems

The Center for Paralysis Research hosts a seminar event each semester as a way to bring the neuroscience community at Purdue together to build collaborations and foster deeper research. The series brings researchers together from various backgrounds including neuroscience, biomedical engineering, auditory science, drug delivery, and more. Since its founding in 2017 by Dr. Riyi Shi, the seminar fosters a multidisciplinary community that aims to expand domestic and international relations for further research collaborations and funding projects. The combination of academic and research institutes has resulted in long-lasting impacts on neurotrauma research.
