Launch of Edinburgh network for researchers with interest in small vessel diseases - 3 Nov 2017
Small Vessel Disease (SVD) causes a quarter of strokes and up to 45% of dementias. It is also a major risk factor for future stroke, dementia and depression.
This event will launch a network for researchers in Edinburgh with an interest in SVD and related disorders. We aim to build on communication, establish new collaborations, foster career development and cement Edinburgh’s position at the forefront of this field.
University of Edinburgh staff are invited to join us for our network launch day.
