UK Stroke Research Workshop 2021 Medical Student Bursary

Organised by the NIHR Stroke Speciality Group
Location: College Court, Leicester.  Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th September 2021
Medical Student Bursary Deadline: 27th June 2021.  


The 2021 UK Stroke Research Workshop, organised under the auspices of the NIHR CRN Stroke Speciality and generously supported by the Stroke Association, and the British Association of Stroke Physicians will be held on 28th and 29th September 2021 in Leicester. The meeting is planned to be in person. 

It follows highly successful workshops held in Cambridge and Manchester, at which we have had a large medical student presence. The workshop promises to be a very exciting two days with some excellent National and International speakers. It will also provide a great opportunity for exchanging ideas between experienced stroke specialists and other young researchers. 

It will be held in at College Court in Leicester. There is accommodation available on site. 

There will be updates on the latest stroke research including sessions on interventional procedures for stroke, stroke genomics, young stroke, stroke rehabilitation, and novel treatment approaches for stroke as well as a workshop on how to get papers published. It’s a great opportunity to hear about translational and clinical stroke research, meet other researchers, and present your work. 

A number of fully funded bursaries (registration fees, accommodation and dinner as well as £100 towards travel) are available for medical students. One of these is funded from the Jane White Stroke Research Fund. At our last meeting in Manchester we funded 10 bursaries.

Applications can be submitted by medical students in their final year who will be doctors at the time of the meeting. To apply submit a one page abstract of a research project in stroke you have carried out ± you should be prepared to present this orally or as a poster. We welcome both clinical and pre-clinical projects. This should be structured with title; authors; institution; background, methods, results, conclusions. Any queries and submissions should be sent to

Closing date is 27th June 2021.
