Welcome to the American Academy of Neurological Surgery 2020 Annual Meeting!

We hope that you are all well and managing the changes that have been thrust upon us in 2020! One downside to the pandemic has been the loss of in-person meetings. Nonetheless, we still want to showcase our members’ and guests’ latest science and research advances, and enjoy at least some virtual time together. To that end, the Academy Meeting this year will be a virtual meeting, on Saturday September 26, scheduled from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm (EDT).

Highlights of the meeting include Academy President, Dr. Sean Grady’s Welcome, Keynote Speaker, Dr. David Weiner, the announcement of the Academy Award Winner followed by the winning presentation, and presentations by Academy Members and Guests on cutting-edge research across various subspecialty neurosurgery topics—including brain tumor therapeutics, spine surgery, functional neurosurgery, cerebrovascular surgery, and pediatric neurosurgery.

Please reserve September 26, 2020 from 10 am – 4 pm on your calendar now for the meeting. More details will follow soon.

Our featured speaker will be Dr. David Weiner, from the University of Pennsylvania and Wistar Institute, who is leading the Inovio-sponsored phase 3 DNA vaccine trial for SARS-CoV-2. He will provide an update on Covid vaccine trial progress.
