2017 Stroke Program in Neurorecovery (SPiN) Workshop

September 2017, Calgary, Alberta

This year’s CPSR Stroke Program in Neurorecovery (SPiN) is being planned for September 2017 in Calgary, Alberta (in conjunction with the CPSR Advances in Stroke Recovery meeting and the Canadian Stroke Congress). We are busy creating an engaging multi-day workshop full of activities and specifically designed for trainees interested in stroke recovery research! Similar to last year, we are planning to have multiple hands-on lab demonstrations and interactive presentations, a keynote presentation, dedicated time with scientists and stroke survivors, and plenty of time for networking! 

The SPiN workshop brings together young researchers from across the country to learn from expert faculty about basic science and clinical stroke research. This two-day workshop is targeted for trainees (primarily, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows) and will be an excellent opportunity to network with other trainees and faculty from across the country. You can find a preliminary program agenda here.  

All trainees are welcome to apply; however, we will only be able to accommodate a limited number of spots, so apply early! CPSR provides funding for travel & accommodations for trainees working at one of the CPSR’s eight partnering core sites. Specific details about maximum subsidies can be found here.

Objectives of the meeting are:

• Listen to lectures about the latest approaches in stroke recovery research, from a basic science and clinical research perspective
• Learn about the latest techniques and technologies relevant for stroke recovery via hands-on workshops 
• Learn about the latest stroke rehabilitation therapies used with patients
• Network with your peers and get to know other research labs
• Interact closely with internationally-recognized scientists

Calling All Trainees – Are we going to the same conference?

Let us know!

With conference season approaching we would like to take an active role in facilitating formal and perhaps less formal get-togethers for NTA trainees who may be attending the same conference. If you plan on attending any conferences this fall (such as Canadian Stroke Congress, Society for Neuroscience (SfN), etc.), please send us a quick email ( with the name and date of the conference. Depending on the number of trainees that will attend each conference we will organize a small social event or get-together . Even if only a couple trainees attend a given conference, we would still like to provide you with the opportunity to meet face-to-face as strengthening connections among stroke trainees across the country is an integral part of our mandate.
