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.
