Junior Investigator Oral Presentations for the ISC Pre-Conference Symposium II:

Stroke in the Lab World: Cutting-Edge Topics in Experimental Stroke Research


Purpose
Provide an opportunity for junior investigators to present their science in a professional meeting environment and gain valuable speaking experience and feedback from senior investigators.

Four abstracts will be selected for presentation at the 2019 ISC Pre-Conference Symposium II: Stroke in the Lab World: Cutting-Edge Topics in Experimental Stroke Research. The four Junior Investigator Presenters will receive complimentary registration to ISC 2019 and the ISC Pre-Conference Symposium II: Stroke in the Lab World: Cutting-Edge Topics in Experimental Stroke Research.

NOTE: If your abstract/science is already being presented at ISC 2019, it is ineligible for consideration for Pre-Con II.

Submitter/Presenter Criteria
Submitter must be either a Student/Trainee or Early Career per the following definition:
Be in training as an undergraduate or pre-doctoral student; OR a resident or post-doctoral fellow who is in training or who has completed training within the last 3 years.

  4. Optical Imaging

However, any basic or pre-clinical abstract related to stroke or vascular pathophysiology will be considered.

Presentation Breakdown
Ten minutes for presentation by junior investigator submitter followed by 2 minutes for questions from the audience. 10 minutes will be allocated to general discussion and questions at the end of the four presentations.
