Farrah J. Mateen, MD, PhD
I’ve been going to the ANA meeting for over 10 years now, since I was a resident. It has provided me opportunities to present my work, but also to meet new people who I wouldn’t have otherwise met. Certainly, they’re reviewers on your papers and grants, but also, they may be your future mentees and mentors. You just don’t know yet, so it’s exciting to see how it unfolds.

The ANA is the premier organization for academic neurology and as such, provides a valuable platform for education, networking and collaboration amongst academicians and future generations of basic and clinical neuroscientists.

Eric Landsness, MD, PhD
As a junior member, the ANA has connected me with leaders in the field and given me exposure at the national level. The Annual Meeting is high-yield for scientific collaboration, networking and job-searching because it brings together the leaders of their scientific field and neurologists at all levels from students to department chairs in an intimate and welcoming setting.

The ANA has been vital for obtaining quality feedback on my research and developing new collaborations. I really enjoy the yearly meetings because they are interactive and just the right size for networking.
