The Wright State University and Premier Health Neuroscience Institute will present its fourth annual neuroscience symposium, “Breakthroughs in NeuroImaging,” on Friday, Oct. 23, from 12:30 to 4 p.m. in the Neuroscience Engineering Collaboration Building on the campus of Wright State University. Sign-in and a luncheon will begin at 11 a.m.
The presentations will explore current research on advanced clinical imaging of the pediatric brain, optical imaging-guided brain function monitoring and neurosurgery, and neuroimaging in the evaluation for epilepsy surgery.
Guest speakers include Robert M. Lober, M.D., Ph.D., pediatric neurosurgeon, Dayton Children’s Hospital; Ulas Sunar, Ph.D., associate professor, Ohio Research Scholar for Medical Imaging; and Juan Ed Torres-Reveron, M.D., neurosurgeon, Wright State/Premier Health Clinical Neuroscience Institute.

Launched in 2010, the Wright State University and Premier Health Neuroscience Institute represents a groundbreaking collaboration that leverages some of the Dayton region’s greatest strengths to address many of its most crucial needs. Designated as a University System of Ohio Center of Excellence, this public-private partnership unites the region’s most advanced biomedical research institution with the clinical resources of its leading hospital system. Dayton Children’s Hospital joined the institute as an affiliate in July 2014.
The institute’s nationally and internationally recognized scientists and clinicians strive to make new discoveries, which will expand our understanding of:
- Memory disorders
- Movement disorders occurring in Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, among others
- Neuropathies that arise from complications of diabetes, chemotherapy or nerve injury
Funding for this event is provided by the Wright State Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies and the Miami Valley Hospital Medical Staff Continuing Medical Education Fund.
The event is free, but does require registration. To register or for more information, go to medicine.wright.edu/ni-symposium.
