Back by popular demand, the ASPNR is excited to bring you Season II of the International Pediatric Neuroradiology Teaching Network (IPNTN)!  This season,  we will offer a FREE monthly lecture series by leading international experts in the field of pediatric neurosciences and neuroradiology.  Each session will feature two prominent speakers, paired together by a theme, both discussing a recent breakthrough in their respective fields.  This will be followed by a lively panel discussion with the authors.  Join us as we look to the future of pediatric neuroradiology!

Due to Zoom issues during the 1st session of Season II, the lecture by Dr. William Dobyns and Dr. Filippo Arrigoni is now available to all, courtesy the ASPNR. Please access HERE.

Subsequent  lectures will only be available for LIVE viewing.
