The 7th International Symposium on Collaterals to the Brain is a multidisciplinary scientific conference focused on collateral circulation in acute ischemic stroke. This 2 ½-day conference is structured around 40-minute sessions devoted to key issues in translating the collaterome in acute stroke therapy across the globe.
ePosters and abstracts related to collaterals and hemodynamics in acute stroke will be featured on our website. We encourage you to still submit your work even if you cannot attend the conference.
25+ interactive satellite sessions, including local audience, remote sites and live participants around the world, coordinated by convenient time zones.
