Renaissance: Future Therapies In Neurology
The utilization of novel future therapies to tackle various neurological diseases will be the pervading theme at the 19th annual meeting of the Neurological Association of New Zealand (NANZ), to be held in the fabulous city of Hamilton from Thursday, November 7th to Friday, November 8th, 2019.
We are delighted to present two renowned keynote speakers. Dr Thomas Oxley is an interventional neurologist in the Department of Neurosurgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, a laboratory head of the Vascular Bionics Laboratory at the University of Melbourne, and the founding CEO of Synchron, a pioneering company in the field of minimally invasive brain-computer interface technology; Thomas is a world expert on endovascular bionics. Dr Bruce Campbell is a stroke neurologist and stroke lead at the Department of Neurology at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, a professorial fellow in the Melbourne Brain Centre at the University of Melbourne, and a director and chair of the Clinical Council for the Stroke Foundation; Bruce was co-principal investigator and medical co-ordinator of EXTEND-IA, a landmark, multi-centre randomized trial of endovascular clot retrieval following standard intravenous thrombolysis in acute ischemic stroke.
NANZ 2019 will take place at the ultramodern Waikato Institute of Technology (WINTEC), a spacious facility located in central Hamilton, and will consist of morning plenary lectures and afternoon parallel sessions. Conference presentations will be dedicated to various subtopics of neurology, but also to neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neuropsychology, and/or neuropsychiatry. Presentations relating to novel or future therapies for neurological diseases will be emphasized. Given the large venue size and parallel session format, submissions for presentations and posters are encouraged from all registrars, neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and neuropsychologists throughout New Zealand.
During the social evening, attendees will be transported to the exquisite Italian Renaissance Garden located in Hamilton Gardens, followed by a cordial dinner at the historic homestead and garden estate, Woodlands Estate.
This will be a conference to remember; we cannot wait to welcome you.
Matthew Phillips (on behalf of the organizing committee).
