Participants to this dynamic day will have opportunity to learn about regional and global clinical research networks and hear from experienced clinician researchers about their pathways to success. Interactive sessions will give opportunities for participants to get feedback on their research ideas and to workshop common challenges faced in building research careers with experienced mentors from a range of disciplines. Participants can share experiences and create and extend their research networks (The full program details will be out soon – see our website for updates).

The additional criteria below will also be assessed as part of the application process:
WSO members can submit a request to review to the WSO Head Office.
Please note that the WSO does not directly fund research, and no financial assistance can be provided to support projects endorsed by the WSO.
The Research Committee has commenced formation of a number of working groups to advance activities and projects. These include: 1) Research Training, 2) Research and stroke funding versus burden of disease, 3) Young stroke burden of disease and 4) Global burden of disease collaboration. We expect to be calling for WSO members with special interest and expertise in these areas to join in early 2020.
