The purpose of the Academy for Multidisciplinary Neurotraumatology (AMN) is the advancement of neurotraumatology in research, practical application and teaching.
The organisation of international congresses as well as participation in such events including regional and national workshops and educational meetings in all fields of neurotraumatology.
The communication between national and international academies, societies and associations concerned with neurotraumatology in research, practical applications and education.
In special cases the AMN could be asked for expert opinions to represent the joint interests of neurotraumatology, towards authorities, insurance companies, medical personnel, representative bodies and third parties at an international level.
Commitment to excellence in education through organisation of workshops and intensification of cooperation with scientific academies, societies, associations as well as research institutions and companies who are concerned with questions related to neurotraumatology.
The AMN is involved directly and exclusively in non-profit activities in the sense of "activities entitled to taxation relief" in the taxation classification.
The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) announced the election of 90 regular members and 10 international members during its annual meeting. Election to the Academy is considered one of the highest honours in the fields of health and medicine and recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service.
One of our most prominent scientists, and also Honorary Member of the AMN, Eiichi Saitoh, MD, DMSc, President of the Fujita Health University, Toyoake, Japan has been recently awarded for being "a leading academician in physical medicine and rehabilitation in Japan and Asia and a world leader in the study of dysphagia. His groundbreaking research includes the development of robotic rehabilitation technology as well as assistive technology including smart home for elderly and the study of basic mechanism of dysphagia using 3-D CT."
Congratulations on this important achievement prof. Saitoh!
It is my great pleasure and honour to inform you that our country's premier minister ARMIN LASCHET has publicly honoured me recently by handing over the Order of Merit of the state North Rhine-Westphalia which is a state of the Federal Republic of Germany. The Order of Merit of North Rhine-Westphalia (German: Verdienstorden des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen) is a civil order of merit, of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia.
The Order of Merit of North Rhine-Westphalia was founded on 11 March 1986. It is awarded to citizens representing all segments of the population who have made extraordinary contributions to the people and state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The order is limited to 2500 living recipients.
From its founding through January 2010, a total of 1576 people have been awarded the Order of Merit of North Rhine-Westphalia so far. This category should contain all people who have received the Order of Merit of North Rhine-Westphalia which is the only general Order of Merit of the North Rhine-Westphalia.
At the award ceremony, the prime minster praised in his laudation especially the effort of Dr. von Wild regarding the continuous improvement of less traumatic microsurgical techniques in restorative neurosurgery of all kinds of brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve lesions as well as in neurotraumatology when practicing a close transdisciplinary cooperation . For example in a cooperative European study he implanted electrodes to allow posttraumatic paraplegic patients to stand up and walk again. And he introduced a new concept for acute posttraumatic and postoperative neurorehabilitation already in an ICU setting. Furthermore, as the prime minster mentioned, this honour is given in recognition of Prof. von Wild’s contribution to social life of the religion by mentioning the charitable Dres. Klaus and Monika von Wild foundation focussed on financial support of non-essentials needy citizens cared by the local parish priest at the Epiphanias church community. Last but not least Mr. Laschet honoured Prof. von Wild’s many years activities and medical- political support as board member in national and international medical societies as well as consultant and Distinguished Professor at Universities in Egypt, Japan, and Russia and initiator of academic co-operations of his home Medical Faculty at UKM in Münster with Fujita Health University in Japan and Medical Faculties at Christian Universities in Indonesia..
