About the Conference

Neuromodulation: The Science is a cross-disciplinary summit to advance the field of neuroscience, held biannually.  The conference offers a dynamic and collaborative learning environment, fostering scientific discourse and outfitting the world’s finest researchers, industry innovators, scientists and clinicians in neuroscience and neuromodulation with the tools they need to advance the field. At Neuromodulation: The Science, adistinguished faculty of international experts in their specialties present the best, most current science of Neuromodulation leading us in a discussion on what is known, what is not known, and how we can work to close the gap.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through joint providership of SpectrumCare and Neurovations Education. SpectrumCare is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

SpectrumCare designates this live activity for a maximum of 7.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits (TM). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Speaker Spotlight

Gene Civillico, PhD, National Institutes of Health (NIH) SPARC Program

Wednesday, May 25
8:15am


The Scientific Committee of Neuromodulation: The Science is proud to announce a late addition to our scientific agenda.

Join us for the very first speaker of the conference on Wednesday, May 25, as we welcome Gene Civillico, PhD to our first session, Solving Neuromodulation Problems with Bioengineering, moderated by Joseph Pancrazio, PhD.

Dr. Civillico was recently appointed Program Manager at the National Institutes of Health Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC) program, which leverages its unique positioning and reach within the scientific community to catalyze development of more effective and minimally invasive neuromodulation therapies.

We are honored to welcome him to the stage, and hope you will join us for this important discussion!
