hosted virtually at


222 Richmond St, Providence, RI 02903
Saturday, January 15, 2022


We are excited to announce that the Brown University Departments of Neurosurgery and Neurology will be hosting the fourth Student Neurosurgery/ Neurology Research Conference (SNRC 2022), a national conference for medical students conducting research in neurosurgery/neurology or related neuroscience fields. Due to COVID-19 and overall positive feedback following last year’s virtual meeting, SNRC 2022 will also be held in a primarily virtual format over Zoom. This conference is an opportunity for medical students to submit abstracts for consideration for research awards, present their research work in preparation for national conference meetings, network with one another, and meet residents in Brown’s Neurosurgery and Neurology residency programs. We are also exploring the possibility of holding in-person workshop style sessions in the late afternoon for anyone who would like to attend in person at the medical school, and will have interest forms sent out for these closer to the meeting date if this will be possible.

The registration form and abstract submission portal for the abstract can be found here: The deadline for abstract submissions is 11:59 PM on December 27th, 2021 and all decisions will be returned by early January. Guidelines and instructions for abstract authors can be found below.

3-4 top abstracts will be chosen for abstract awards (with monetary prizes) and presentation at the early afternoon plenary oral abstract session. All other accepted abstracts will be presented as shorter talks in the morning abstract presentation sessions.
