Dr. Kiran Pawar – ASIA TRoHNS Award

The Translational Research or Human Neuroscience Studies in Spinal Cord Injury (TRoHNS) Award, sponsored by ASIA past president Keith Tansey, MD, PhD, has been instituted in alignment with ASIA’s goal to support investigators across a broader continuum of spinal cord injury science and to encourage work in under-developed areas in the field.  The award is given for the best abstract submitted to the annual ASIA conference by a clinician or scientist involved in translational research or human neuroscience studies in spinal cord injury.

The 2020 TRoHNS award was presented to Kiran Pawar for his abstract “Noninvasive Chronic Spinal Stimulation as a Multi-session Therapy to Improve Cardiovascular Function After Spinal Cord Injury.”  at the 2020 ASIA AGM on October 5, 2020.
