Greetings from Lucknow
On behalf of the organizing committee, it is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to attend the NEUROTRAUMA 2018 conference, to be held in LUCKNOW from 17th-19th AUGUST 2018.
Lucknow, also known as the Golden City of the East and the Constantinople of India, is the capital city of Uttar Pradesh and lies in the middle of the Heritage Arc. This bustling city, famed for its Nawabi era finesse and amazing food, is a unique mix of the ancient and the modern. It is home to extraordinary monuments depicting a fascinating blend of Awadhi as well as colonial architecture.
Literature, cuisine and artistic culture put Lucknow a cut above the rest of India. Chikan embroidery and zardozi have made Lucknow a brand in global fashion. Kebabs and Biryani are the two lip-smacking delicacies that beckon visitors again and again from across the globe.
We look forward to welcoming you in Lucknow for NEUROTRAUMA 2018.
Organized by Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Neurosurgery Society
