Organised by Prof. Costantino Iadecola (Weill Cornell Medicine, USA) and Prof. Timothy Murphy (The University of British Columbia, Canada), during this Brain Conference leading experts from both basic and clinical science will present advances that contribute to a deeper mechanistic understanding of stroke, including fundamental questions around: 1) risk factors: from single genes to holistic factors such as the microbiome, 2) the molecular pathobiology of stroke and the pathogenic role of immunity and blood-brain barrier breakdown, 3) neurovascular reorganization and re-wiring of connections after stroke damage, 4) the long term sequelae afflicting stroke survivors and the relationship between stroke and dementia, and 5) strategies to reduce the burden on stroke, ranging from prevention and acute therapy, to promoting functional recovery.
