The BEST in Stroke Science

Program Description

The International Stroke Conference is the world’s premier meeting dedicated to the science and treatment of cerebrovascular disease. This 2½-day conference features more than 1,500 compelling presentations that emphasize basic, clinical and translational sciences as they evolve toward a better understanding of stroke pathophysiology with the goal of developing more effective therapies. Join us and network with more than 4,500 colleagues in the stroke field from around the world with wide-ranging expertise and experience.

Clinical Sessions focus on community risk factors; emergency care; acute neuroimaging; acute endovascular and acute nonendovascular treatment; diagnosis of stroke etiology; cerebral large artery disease; in-hospital treatment; clinical rehabilitation and recovery; and health services, quality improvement, and patient-centered outcomes. Basic Science Sessions focus on vascular biology in health and disease; basic and preclinical neuroscience of stroke recovery; and experimental mechanisms and models. Further specialized topics include pediatric stroke; intracerebral hemorrhage; nursing; preventive strategies; vascular cognitive impairment; aneurysms; subarachnoid hemorrhage; neurocritical care; vascular malformations; and ongoing clinical trials.

Presentations on these topics attract a wide range of healthcare professionals and investigators including adult and pediatric neurologists; neurosurgeons; neuroradiologists and interventional radiologists; physiatrists; emergency medicine specialists; primary care physicians; hospitalists; nurses and nurse practitioners; rehabilitation specialists; physical, occupational, and speech therapists; pharmacists; and basic researchers spanning the fields of cerebrovascular function and disease.

Education. Inspiration. Illumination. The International Stroke Conference - connecting the world to stroke science.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the International Stroke Conference, participants should be able to:

  • Identify recent advances in basic models of stroke and their translation to clinical research.
  • Evaluate recent advances in the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of cerebrovascular disease.
  • Analyze new and ongoing advances in clinical research through late-breaking science and ongoing clinical trials sessions.
  • Discuss new research, treatments and interventions with scientists and investigators working in all areas of cerebrovascular disease.
  • Interpret the rapidly changing areas within the stroke spectrum such as emerging options for the diagnosis and treatment of acute stroke, mechanisms of stroke recovery, and the impact of vascular cognitive impairment.
  • Appraise the diverse challenges presented by cerebrovascular disease to specific populations, including ethnic and racial minorities, women, children, and developing communities.
