The WSO is delighted to announce the winners of the Future Stroke Leaders Programme research project grant awards. The assessment committee considered 6 excellent project proposals which all incorporated the overall programme objective, in line with the WSO’s mission, to reduce the global burden of stroke through more effective prevention, better treatment and long-term support. The duration of each grant is one year, and the maximum funding per project is USD 20,000. It was a hard choice to decide upon the final four outstanding projects that cover a wide range of topics, from acute stroke care to rehabilitation, and aim to benefit global stroke care development.
We would like to thank all Future Stroke Leaders for their commitment to improving global stroke care and welcome the start of the implementation phase. All completed projects will be presented at the World Stroke Congress in Singapore in 2022 (WSC2022).
The titles of the 4 funded projects:
Congratulations! We look forward to see the interim results during the implementation year and the final outcomes at WSC2022.
Achieving our vision of a life free from stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at the global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
