Pre-Conference Symposium II: From Beside-to-Bench and Back Again

After four decades of investigating mechanisms involved in ischemic brain injury, we have yet to develop an FDA-approved neuroprotective agent. Is reversing translational research the answer?

You can explore this new paradigm in Pre-Conference Symposium II at the AHA/ASA’s International Stroke Conference 2018.

“Stroke in the Lab World: Reversing Stroke Translational Research — Bedside-to-Bench and Back Again” will be held on Jan. 23 in Theater 411 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. It will feature leading researchers who have successfully achieved reverse translation, starting with human samples and applying cutting-edge big data techniques to identify genes/proteins of relevance.

Attendees will further explore examples of next steps needed to understand molecular mechanisms implicated by the genes/proteins identified by these new -omic techniques.

There is a separate fee to attend. Register here.
