Stroke Science and Big Ideas Planning Symposium

SCAN, the Stroke Collaborative Action Network, will hold a symposium on Thursday June 19th. SCAN was formed in response to the Stanford Neuroscience Institute's call for Big Ideas in Neuroscience, and aims to support interdisciplinary collaborative research that will help stroke survivors. Our program on the 19th will include talks from a stroke survivor and SCAN faculty in the morning. The afternoon will consist of interactive discussions about which proposed projects should be included in our grant proposal to the SNI. At the end of the day, SCAN faculty will give feedback and rate each proposal.

If you are Stanford faculty and would like to join SCAN, please email Marion Buckwalter at
