During the 39th Annual National Neurotrauma Symposium held in June in Atlanta, Georgia, Corina Bondi (pictured, left) was given the 2022 Rosalind Franklin Award.

Established in 2021 by Mary Ann Liebert Publishers, which publishes the Journal of Neurotrauma, it aims to recognize a female researcher who has made a notable scientific contribution 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.

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.”

Bondi is an assistant professor in neurology as well as physical medicine and rehabilitation in Pitt’s School of Medicine. She’s also the associate director of executive function and neuropharmacology in the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research.
