The American Neurological Association (ANA) is an organization which is comprised of the top academic neurologists and neuroscientists from across the country. At the ANA’s Annual Meeting, these academics share and discuss the latest research and breakthroughs related to diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and multiple sclerosis, etc. The Derek Denny-Brown Young Neurological Scholar Award is one of the awards that the ANA gives out at the Annual Meeting. The 2019 Derek Denny-Brown Young Neurological Scholar Award went to our own Cassie S. Mitchell, Ph.D., Georgia Institute of Technology. We are very proud of her, and are excited to see her hard work being nationally recognized.
