Canadian Stroke Congress: Sept. 9-11 Calgary Telus Convention Centre
Each year, Canada’s stroke research community gathers to review progress, share new ideas, celebrate promising advances and promote greater collaboration.
2017 is no exception.
On Friday, Sept. 8, the CPSR will hold its Annual Scientific Meeting for members and funded researchers at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel in Calgary, followed by a dinner and Advances in Stroke Recovery panel discussion. Both events — the Annual Scientific Meeting and Advances in Stroke Recovery — require pre-registration.
The Annual Scientific Meeting begins at 8 am with a breakfast buffet in the Oval Room at the Palliser, followed by a brief update on the CPSR’s progress and plans. From 9 am to 10:00 am, Dr. Cathy Stinear of the University of Aukland will deliver a keynote lecture on “Biomarkers for predicting motor recovery after stroke: Implications for clinical research and practice.” The remainder of the day will include a series of presentations on cutting-edge research in the CPSR and interactive breakout sessions focused on forging new research priorities and collaborations.
