The final report of the Stroke Research Priorities Meeting is now available on the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) public website.
This report is the result of an NINDS effort to identify the highest priorities for stroke research. Workgroups of experts in stroke prevention, treatment, and recovery research considered more than 180 proposals submitted by the broad stroke research community, and during a meeting in August of 2012, came up with nine research priorities for the field.
One of the priorities is treatment of asymptomatic carotid disease – one of the SVS clinical research priority areas. The opportunities described in this report will guide NINDS investments in stroke research over the next five to 10 years.
