The Canadian Stroke Network Trainee Association (CSNTA) will be hosting the 2012 SPiN (Special Program in Neuroscience) course in Calgary on Sept. 27 and 28 — just prior to the Canadian Stroke Congress. The course will be held in collaboration with the Calgary Stroke Program, the University of Calgary and the Foothills Hospital.
An important objective of SPiN is to create opportunities for graduate students involved in stroke research to expand their stroke knowledge in the areas of basic sciences and rehabilitation. The two-day program will feature the best speakers in the field of stroke and will cover relevant research models. It will include lectures, site visits, case studies, surgical insights and the latest techniques used in rehabilitation.
Successful applicants will receive airfare and shared hotel accommodation to attend the course. Preference will be given to those who have not previously attended SPiN and who have submitted an abstract for the 3rd Canadian Stroke Congress, which takes place from Sept. 29th – Oct. 2nd in Calgary. All trainee members (MSc, PhD and Post-doc) of the CSNTA are invited to complete the application form here. Membership in the CSNTA is open to any trainee involved in stroke research at a Canadian university. Membership applications can be found by clicking here and should be submitted by email to CSNTA@canadianstrokenetwork.ca.
