ISC 2015 programming also features two Junior Investigator symposia dedicated to providing feedback for research proposals from early career investigators. In Nashville this year, there is a special pre-conference symposium* for Student, Trainee and Early Career Professionals titled “Emerging Trends for Stroke Trials: Biomarkers, Adaptive Trial Design, Repair Trials and New Endpoints.

Taking a break from traditional ISC programming, you also can participate in the educational luncheons. On Wednesday, there is the Nursing and Rehabilitation Professionals Luncheon and the Fellow and Early Career Luncheon: Developing Successful Career Paths in Stroke. On Thursday, there is the new Advance Practice Providers’ Luncheon and the Fellow and Early Career Roundtable Luncheon. All lunches start at 12:10. Tickets are required as seating is limited.

We welcome you to become a part of the ISC family and look forward to expanding our partnership with you.
