ISGC Global Alliance for Acute and Long-Term Outcome Studies in stroke
An ISGC initiative
The Global Alliance in Acute and Long-Term outcome is an initiative of researchers from the International Stroke Genetics Consortium (ISGC) interested in the genetics associated with the neurological evolution and the stroke long-term recovery.
This global initiative is open to researchers that are recruiting or will recruit ischemic stroke patients prospectively. For more information please send an e-mail through our Contact section.
The Aims of the Global Alliance are:
1- To have a consensus about minimum and preferred variables to be recruited.
2- To follow this consensus in prospective studies.
3- To facilitate the data sharing.
4- To facilitate project interconnections.
The final objective is to perform a Genome Wide meta-analysis in acute and long-term outcome to find genes and pathways associated with post-stroke evolution.
