Description

Spindletop in the fallAfter a successful inaugural workshop, the second annual Stroke Translational Research Advancement Workshop (STRAW) will commence on October 24th, 2018. As with last year’s workshop, eminent clinical and basic stroke researchers will be presenting the most recent advancements in the area of translational research. Besides the presentations, this workshop offers a moderator-led open discussion airing the issues in this research area, and providing opportunities to share ideas and obtain expertise in stroke translational research development. There will be participant workgroups focusing on major issues in translational research, with the goal to draft publications for sharing findings and recommendations. Finally, the agenda provides ample opportunity to network with fellow national and international stroke researchers, with the goal to generate long-lasting collaborative relationships to propel the science and treatment of stroke into new innovation and development. Based on feedback from last year, meeting attendance is being capped so please register early to ensure your spot is confirmed! Please note that there are two options under the green "register" tab. By selecting the first option, you will register for the workshop and if you want to participate in the optional excursion, you must also select that option.
