The INTS is a body of scientists who attempt parity between brain and spinal cord injury research while preserving, as best as possible, equality in geographic location, gender and basic science versus clinical emphasis.
The purpose of the INTS is to foster the worldwide dissemination of Neurotrauma research and to supervise International Neurotrauma symposia throughout the world.
The intention continues to be to alternate the venue of the symposium meetings between Australasia, Europe and the Western Hemisphere every two or three years. To do so, the INTS authorizes a local host for each meeting and assists the local host’s organizing committee thorough the International Scientific Advisory Board of the INTS.
The National Neurotrauma Society seeks to accelerate research that will provide answers for clinicians and ultimately improve the treatments available to patients. The National Neurotrauma Society will continue to promote excellence in the field by providing opportunities for scientists, establishing standards in both basic and clinical research, encouraging and supporting research, and promoting liaisons with other organizations that influence the care and cure of neurotrauma victims.
The purpose of the AANS/CNS Neurotrauma and Critical Care Section is to provide a forum for education and research on trauma and critical care of the nervous system, to coordinate activities and programs relating to trauma, critical care and sports medicine for the parent organizations and other societies, committees and agencies, to represent the parent organizations, at their discretion, at any organization.
