World-renowned scientists share a stimulating exchange that indicates hope for the future of SCI research.
Attendees at the Brescia, Italy, conference included article author and presenter Laurance Johnston (left) and symposium organizer Giorgio Brunelli, a preeminent SCI surgeon.
Celebrated science-fiction author Arthur C.
