During the 39th Annual National Neurotrauma Symposium held June 2022 in Atlanta, Corina Bondi, PhD, assistant professor, UPMC Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, was awarded the 2022 Rosalind Franklin Award for her outstanding contributions to the field of neurotrauma.

The recipient is selected based on the impact of their research in traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injury, educational efforts such as mentoring, outreach, and dissemination of neurotrauma knowledge, and significant contributions to the mission of the National Neurotrauma Society (NNS) beyond research and educational activities.

Dr. Bondi was selected due to “her research contributions to our understanding of executive function impairment across sexes and age after TBI, her mentorship of 42 trainees, and outstanding service as a leader in NNS.”
