Hot topics in acute stroke: from bench to bedside and back again


10:00 - 13:30

Event Type

The approach to reperfusion treatments in acute ischemic stroke continues to evolve and neuroimaging is becoming more and more important in the diagnostic work-up and clinical decisions. “Imaging is brain” is replacing “Time is brain” and is bringing a renewed interest in the state of the ischemic tissue and therefore in preclinical research. Preclinical research could help understanding the neuronal and vascular underpinnings of futile recanalization, identify potential treatment targets and lead to clinical translation. See the attached flyer for invited speakers, topics, and final programme.

Registration is free of charge. The participation in the webinar delivers 4,5 ECM.
