Dr. Merle Paule, Director of the Division of Neurotoxicology, gave a presentation at the 5th PANDA (Pediatric Anesthesia and NeuroDevelopment Assessment) Symposium held in New York, NY, on April 16-17, 2016.  The presentation focused on NCTR’s nonhuman primate studies on the long-lasting cognitive deficits associated with neonatal general anesthesia.  The symposium, sponsored in part by the SmartTotsdisclaimer icon public-private partnership between the FDA and the International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS), provides a forum for presentation and discussion of clinical and preclinical anesthesia studies being conducted at multiple U.S. institutions.
