Registration is now open for the 2nd UK Stroke Research Workshop that will take place 11-12 September in Cambridge.

This exciting workshop will be hosted by the NIHR CRN Stroke Speciality with additional support from the Stroke Association and the British Association of Stroke Physicians.

The workshop promises to be a very exciting day and a half with some excellent speakers, updates on the latest stroke research including sessions in Stroke Imaging; Acute Ischaemic Stroke & Reperfusion Injury; New Technologies in Stroke Recovery; Heart & Brain; and Inflammation & Stroke. The draft programme can be viewed here.

The workshop will also run sessions on Research Mentorship and Career Development, and will be a great opportunity for exchanging ideas between
experienced stroke specialists and more early career researchers.

Medical Student Bursary

Two fully funded bursaries (registration fees, accommodation and dinner as well as £100 towards travel) are available for medical students. These are funded from the Jane White Stroke Research fund.

To apply, please submit either:
1) A one-page abstract of a research project in stroke you have carried out – you should be prepared to present this orally or as a poster
2) An essay (max 5,000 words excluding references) on the topic “How will stroke care have changed when I am a consultant?”

Further details about bursaries are available here.

Please email your submissions to by Saturday 30th June 2018.

Abstract Submissions

We encourage submission of abstracts on any aspects of stroke research. These will be reviewed by the steering committee and there will be spaces for both oral presentations and posters.

Please email your talk/poster abstracts to by Tuesday 10th July 2018.

Further details about abstract submission are available here.

Data Challenges in Cardiovascular Research

Cardiovascular SRI and Big Data SRI have joined forces to raise awareness of data-related challenges in cardiovascular research and to maximise collaborative opportunities between academic and clinical research groups in Cambridge.

This collaboration will be launched on Monday 24th September 2018 through a free research showcase event at St Catharine's College, and will be followed up in 2019 with a series of workshops supporting collaborations around specific research questions.

Confirmed speakers include researchers from the University of Cambridge, EBI, Wellcome Sanger Institute, Alan Turing Institute, AstraZeneca, and the EPSRC CMIH.

We aim to connect everyone in the wider Cambridge area with interest in data collecting, management, and analysis. The main focus will be on cardiovascular research but the computational challenges and methods are applicable across healthcare and we welcome short talks and poster presentations that are not specific to cardiovascular field.

Call for Abstracts

We are now inviting submissions for poster presentations and short talks around the broad topic of "Data challenges in cardiovascular research".

Examples include, but are not restricted to:

  • Imaging of heart and arteries
  • Prediction of vascular events
  • Prediction of future risk of vascular disease
  • Simulations of heart/vascular function
  • Apps to support clinical trials
  • Apps/devices to monitor long-term conditions.

Abstracts are accepted from academic, clinical, and commercial researchers within Cambridge region. Please contact Katja or Vicky if you aren't quite sure whether your talk or poster would fit this event.

Please submit your abstract HERE by Tuesday 31st July 2018.


This is a free event but it is essential to register to reserve a seat in the McGrath Centre. Please contact Katja or Vicky if you have any questions about this event or if you have trouble registering.

Please Register HERE by Friday 31st August 2018.
