This is a focused workshop directed to young investigators.
The main aim is to support young stroke researchers in promoting their research project under construction to the wider stroke community and to have their proposed study design reviewed in an open forum and by an expert mentor in the field. We hope that this will help young researchers to refine their study design and to promote collaboration with other groups and centres.
As in previous years, young investigators (<35 years) are invited to submit an abstract for the workshop describing a planned research study, an ongoing project still under development or interim results from an ongoing project.
The abstracts should be submitted to a special category (37: “YSPR design workshop for studies in development”).
The successful applicants will give an oral presentation, followed by constructive assessment of the study’s design and advice on its future development by a senior, internationally-renowned invited investigator. In addition to providing expert guidance on the development of the study, the workshop will be an opportunity for the young researchers to promote their work to the wider community and establish collaborations.
The presenters of the two top scoring abstracts will receive a place at the ESO Summer School or the ESO Edinburgh Stroke Winter School in 2023. All presenters will be interviewed by other Young Stroke Physicians and Researchers and the interviews will be featured on the ESO blog (https://eso-stroke.org/news/).
