North American Neuromodulation Society

2018 Joint NYC Neuromodulation and NANS Summer Series Conference

August 24–26, 2018, New York City

The joint NYC Neuromodulation and NANS Summer Series conference spans the continuum of healthcare technologies, from wearable technologies, to VR, to machine learning and how it’s integrated into all aspects of neuromodulation.

On August 24–26, 2018, join thought leaders from medicine, academia, and industry for the most dynamic conference on the future of neuromodulation. Register for a preconference workshop or learn more about abstract submission below.

Non-invasive and invasive technologies are moving rapidly from bench-side to bedside, even as renewed focus on mechanisms of actions (target engagement) drive basic and clinic research. New tools from the fields of artificial intelligence and machine learning, along with medical wearables and apps, are disrupting traditional models of clinical trials and treatment.
