In 2020 the WSO Research Committee is partnering with the European Stroke Organisation (ESO) and the Global Alliance of Independent Networks focused on Stroke trials (GAINS) to run the second Early Career training day ahead of the European Stroke Organisation and World Stroke Organization Conference in Vienna.
In the coming months we will be inviting early career researchers interested in developing skills in multi-site clinical trials and cohorts to register for this meeting. Please note that ‘Early Career’ is defined as being within ten years of appointment to an academic or research position. Career disruptions will be taken into consideration.
We invite you to the second Early Career Investigators Training Workshop, a fully virtual event for emerging investigators from across the world. Participants to these dynamic sessions will have opportunity to learn about regional and global clinical research networks and hear from experienced clinician researchers about their pathways to success.
Submitting your research idea
To get the most out of this day, participants are encouraged to consider submitting an expression of interest to present their research idea in a small session format. The topic areas include hyperacute ischaemic stroke, ICH, secondary prevention, stroke recovery and nursing, imaging, omics, epidemiology and cohorts.
The Global Alliance of Independent Networks focused on Stroke trials (GAINS)/World Stroke Organization Early Career Investigators Workshop was held October 16, 2018. This was a full day clinical trials training day for emerging investigators with the goal to inspire the next generation of stroke clinical trialists. 120 participants attended the event from 22 countries representing all continents. This workshop was funded through the Canadian Stroke Trials for Optimized Results collaboration (CaSTOR), a joint initiative of the Canadian Stroke Consortium (CSC) and the Heart and Stroke Foundation Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery (CPSR) made possible by a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

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.
