SCIENTIFIC EXHIBITS & POSTERS
  • Image guided therapy.
  • R & D in brain mapping
  • Intra-operative surgical planning.
  • Clinical trials
  • Bio-Ethics
SPECIAL FOCUS SESSIONS
  • Governmental Regulation
  • Government Education
  • Patient Advocacy
  • Healthcare Policy
  • Funding Opportunities
STUDENT FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES
  • Interdisciplinary Fellowships
  • Student Travel awards
  • Mentorship programs
  • Scholarships

World Congresses

The annual World Congress of SBMT is a multi-disciplinary forum designed to facilitate cross-disciplinary dissemination of technological and medical advances and scientifi c discovery.

Thus the attendees are mixture of neurosurgeons, radiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, rehabilitation medicine, cardiologists, pulmonologists, bioethicists, policy makers, government officials, engineers, physicists, graphic designers, allied healthcare professionals, healthcare executives, students, post-docs., residents and fellows.

SBMT annual meetings are world class scientific events designed to have a significant impact on cross-disciplinary flow of information and scientific advancements.

Student Chapters

The student chapters are organized to promote and encourage multi-disciplinary research across disciplines. Universities with Student Chapters qualify for student travel award starting 2012.

Fellowships

SBMT fellowships are focused on interdisciplinary training of neurosurgeons, neurologists, radiologists and rehabilitation physicians, neuroscientists and engineers on diseases that has major Social impact such as Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, neuro-oncology and neurodegenerative diseases. The fellowships are design to apply state-of-the-art research through the study of biomedical science and cutting edge technologies to clinical problems. These scholarship are awarded to masters students, pre-doctoral, and post-doctoral fellows.

Visiting Scholars Program

Visiting scholars program facilitates exchange of scientifi c investigators and policy experts with other countries and institutions through participating SBMT centers. The goal of the visiting scholar program is to develop collaborations between physical and biological sciences and address major policy issues relevant to the society.

Outreach Program

Outreach programs including woman and minority in sciences and community awareness of new technology, science and medical advancements. This includes high school and college educational programs run through student chapters worldwide.

Society Publications

The Society has successfully published 3 special issues with NeuroImage. We have reached out to more than 50,000 scientists worldwide through our partnership with Elsevier in the last several years. Recently, SBMT partnered with PloSOne publishing giant to launch special Collection/publication called: NeuroMapping and Therapeutics (www.PloSOne.org ) PloSOne is one of the largest Open access Publishers in the world. We anticipate that we reach out to a larger audience of scientists through our partnership with PloSOne and surpass our outreach in last several years.

Industry Partnership

SBMT encourages support from private industry and provides industry with a forum to present their latest advances. The society recognizes the role of industry in translating cutting-edge research and technology into the market. SBMT is currently partnering with more than 100 multi-national corporations.

Government Relationships

The society works actively with the representatives of various governments to leverage its resources and focus attention on healthcare issues through interdisciplinary collaborations. In the past SBMT scientific activities have been supported by government institutions such as UCLA-CNSI, TATRC, DVBIC, Canadian Research Council, NINDS, NCI and NIBIB.

Healthcare Policy

In 2008 SBMT introduced formation of Science, Technology, Medicine and Law-Healthcare Policy (STML-Hub) to the US Congress and house of representative in order to establish a center for introducing technological and scientific advancements to the policy makers. The organization hoped that through this hub we could educate policymakers about the state-of-the-art science. This could help policy makers identify technologies, which could save cost, increase efficiency and better healthcare delivery.

SBMT is now working on a proposal to establish National Center for Nano-Bio-Electronics. The center will be focused on integration of nanotechnology, stem cell and cellular therapy and medical imaging/devices for the purpose of rapidly providing solutions for the wounded warriors and civilians with neurological disorders such as PTSD and TBI.

Seed Grants

SBMT, in partnership with Brain mapping Foundation and other foundations is planning to provide seed grants to encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration. The purpose of these grants is to bridge physical and biological sciences and encourage cross disciplinary collaboration.

Global Physician and Scientist (GPS)

GPS is a humanitarian program, which is focused on mobilizing physicians, scientist and surgeons to serve for few weeks in the poor and rural areas of the United States and abroad. This program will collaborate with industry and government officials and will use the national and international SBMT centers as bases of operations. The program is designed to not only help alleviate healthcare disparities by bringing world class physicians to the poor areas but also help improve local economy through micro and neuroEconomics.
