NIHR STROKE RESEARCH WORKSHOP 2017
Date: 11 and 12 September 2017 Location: Clare College, Cambridge
Arranged under the auspices of the NIHR CRN Stroke Speciality.
Supported by the British Heart Foundation, BASP, and Eastern CRN and Royal College of Physicians and
Surgeons in Glasgow (RCPSG).
1. Inform and attract a broad audience to Stroke research as a career.
2. Target areas of research need one of which is laboratory and translational research.
3. Capacity building- inspiring new recruits and ensuring success of those who have entered research.
4. Provide a forum for young researchers to link with experienced stroke research groups.
5. Provide a collaborative forum to discuss translational stroke research.
Trainees at all stages of Stroke research:
• Medical students
• CMT/FY considering entering Stroke
• Junior SPRs considering Stroke research
• Research, trainees undertaking a PhD or MD
• Post-doctoral stroke researchers
• Stroke fellows
• Non-clinical Stroke researchers
All Consultant level staff at all stages are welcome to attend.
Markedly subsidised rate will be available for all trainees and non-clinical researchers within 3 years of first post
Abstract submissions are invited for oral and poster presentation – details will be sent after registration if requested
CPD approval from RCP: 12 credits.
