This year the Stroke Program in Neurorecovery (SPiN) Workshop will be held in Toronto on November 19-22, 2019.  For the multi-day workshop, we have created interactive activities, specifically designed for trainees focused on stroke recovery research! We will have presentations, hands-on lab demonstrations, dedicated time with stroke survivors, and lots of time for networking!
Trainees will interact with a host of researchers from the Baycrest, Sunnybrook, and Toronto Rehab, including, Drs. Nicole Anderson, Mark Bayley, Sandra Black, Avril Mansfield, Jed Meltzer, and Elizabeth Rochon, to name a few. Click on the following link to preview the preliminary agenda.
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 interactive workshops
• Learn about the latest stroke rehabilitation therapies used with patients
• Network with your peers and get to know other research labs
