Recap: 2021 ITN & MnDRIVE Brain Conditions Joint Research Retreat

With the disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2021 ITN collaborated with MnDRIVE Brain Conditions to host a virtual Research Symposium in lieu of our traditional retreat. This joint event was held on January 12, 2021 and featured three speakers, including: Dr. Ana Núñez, Vice Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; PhD candidate Arash Mahan, Biomechanics and Neuromotor Control; MnDRIVE Discoveries through Industry Partnerships Commercialization Fellow; and Dr. David Darrow, Assistant Professor in Neurosurgery; MnDRIVE Neuromodulation Scholar; ITN Scholar. We were unable to have a poster session, but hope to come together again soon once it is safe to do so!
