Press Release: BRIGHT Gains Momentum- Dream, Discover, Translate, Enrich

It started off swiftly as the parents and scientists of BRIGHT (Brain Injury Group Hope through Treatment) joined each other for BRIGHT’s first official meeting of its Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). Some convened directly with founder Matt Palaszynski in San Francisco, CA at the site of this year’s American Academy of Neurology/Society Of Neuroscience Meeting, others joined from around the globe via teleconference.

The goals for the meeting were lofty, to discuss ways to harness the power of science to improve the lives of children with neurological disabilities. It was a Sunday morning and the high levels of participation were testament to the excitement and enthusiasm the SAB has for BRIGHT’s mission to help children with neurological disabilities.

Dr. Story Landis, Director of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and BRIGHT co-founder at the American Academy of Neurology
