The incentive to disseminate the latest stroke and brain health science to colleagues around the world has never been greater. Clinicians and Scientists thrive on collaboration and sharing their study findings. Present your innovative research to a global audience at the International Stroke Conference, the most influential and impactful cerebrovascular disease conference in the world.

Your work is crucial to saving lives and improving quality of life. Share it with fellow researchers, clinicians, and scientists.

The Stroke Council is dedicated to advancing the science of stroke prevention, treatment and recovery through research and education. Members develop scientifically based publications, meetings, education, and training programs; they help translate stroke-related science into effective initiatives and products for the public, healthcare professionals, healthcare facilities and policymakers.

The CVSN Council accelerates the discovery, interpretation, and application of science to enhance cardiovascular health and treat cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The council helps develop scientific statements and advisories, guide professional education activities, provide scientific expertise, conduct research, translate findings, and promote evidence-based practices in clinical settings.
