A dozen of the top Neuroscience experts from across the nation educated the South Florida medical community on the latest advances in treating patients with neurological disorders and head injuries at the Fourth Annual Neuroscience Symposium sponsored by the Palm Beach Neuroscience Institute (PBNI), St. Mary’s Medical Center Neuroscience Center and Palm Beach Children’s Hospital. The event brought together medical specialists involved in the diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, and care of patients with neurological disorders including stroke and traumatic brain injury, neuropsychology, rehabilitation, neurocritical care, and anti-aging medicine. Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits were issued by St. Mary’s Medical Center, which is accredited by the Florida Medical Association to provide continual medical education for physicians. The Fourth Annual Neuroscience Symposium was held on Saturday, November 2, at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens.

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) President and CEO George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D., recently announced that a NSU research team led by Mariana Morris, Ph.D., and Nancy Klimas, M.D., was selected by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) as one of two DoD Gulf War Illness Research Program Consortium awardees.
The award includes a $4.1 million grant to fund NSU’s research project titled “Understanding Gulf War Illness (GWI): An Integrative Modeling Approach.” The research will be housed in the Institute for Neuro Immune Medicine, part of NSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine.
The consortium combines leading scientific researchers with expertise in basic and clinical research along with those with expertise in stress response and heart function models, genomics, computational models that isolate therapeutic targets, and guide drug development, formulation and testing.
“This grant allows us to find ways to help hundreds of thousands of men and women who risked everything to serve their country and are now facing adverse health effects,” added Gary S. Margules, Sc.D., NSU vice president for research and technology transfer.
Nova Southeastern University’s College of Dental Medicine (NSU-CDM) recently announced that it has received a $125,000 endowed scholarship from Great Expressions Dental Centers (GEDC).
Following the donation and an application process, NSU awarded $2,500 each to two CDM students who are interested in pursuing careers in community dentistry and helping underserved populations, Kevin Carbonell and Geoffrey Morris.
Carbonell is a third year NSU dental student who graduated from St. Andrews School in Boca Raton and earned bachelor’s degrees in biology and classical history from the University of Florida.
Morris is a third year NSU dental student who graduated from Coral Springs Charter School and earned his bachelor’s degree in biology with a minor in psychology at NSU and his master’s degree in biomedical science from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.
