15 th MHeNs Research Day 2023
This day, 22 March, is also Word Coma Day. World Coma Day is an all-day global online event featuring stories of remarkable recovery, science talks by medical experts, educational sessions for patients and families, and "shout out" videos from providers, patients, and families around the world.
In Maastricht we also want to contribute to this day. We have invited two excellent keynote speakers who will highlight their work regarding diagnosing and treating different stages of coma after severe acquired brain injury (Prof. Steven Laureys, Liège) and the rehabilitation possibilities after awaking from coma (dr. Marsh Königs, Daan Theeuwes Centrum Woerden). Can we really cure coma and how can we stimulate the plasticity of damaged brain?
The keynote talks will be interspersed with research pitches and interactive sessions on projects conducted across our themes and divisions, making this year’s Research Day and World Coma Day an event you will not want to miss.
