2022 PNS Annual Meeting Abstract Prize Recipients, Vol. 4, July 2022

Jun 27, 2022 | Nerve Connect

Each year the PNS presents named lectures and provides a $750 USD prize to Junior Members presenting oral platform or oral poster abstracts, as a tribute to the luminaries in our field. Being chosen as a plenary speaker or prize recipient is considered an honor and commemorates the contributions of previous leaders in the industry.
