WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
The PNS Annual Meeting is the premiere venue to learn about the latest international research across specialties in peripheral neuropathy.
Having attended PNS meetings for several years now, I continue to be impressed by the breadth and depth of information discussed at this conference that covers both basic and clinical science research. In addition, the attention to detail with respect to the scientific program content and the networking events is always spectacular. I look forward to the opportunity to attend every year, and I also find the ability to collaborate on an international level to be in particular a unique feature of the PNS.
I first stumbled upon the PNS as a junior site investigator for the International GBS Outcome Study. Little did I know at the time that my joining the PNS would represent the beginning of a career-changing journey in inflammatory neuropathies that would have me working closely with international thought leaders in the field. From amazing conference venues in Europe and the United States to excellent educational courses to world-class research collaboration, the PNS makes you more committed to your career as a peripheral neuropathy specialist. It also makes you a better clinician for your patients. Consider joining. It’s highly worth the investment.
My first experience of the PNS meeting was in Glasgow in 2016. It was really amazing and very benificial, and also promoted the case inclusion of IGOS in China. The PNS meeting recruits elites worldwide to introduce the new progress of both the basic research and clinical trials. It is a very good opportunity to renew yourself and improve yourself via the presentation and discussion. Each part of the meeting is very rewarding. I look forward to every PNS meeting and the discussion and collaboration which happens there.
