April 29 – April 30: International Society for Neurovascular Disease Annual Meeting

The 6th annual ISNVD scientific meeting will take place in lower  Manhattan, New York City on April 29th and April 30th of 2016. During the past few years, the field of neurovascular disease has witnessed a vast growth in clinical and translational research. Meetings are more educational but from time and time again, there is only a limited opportunity for a complete discussion. As a result, a gap appears between the growth of knowledge and its distribution and use. The ISNVD meeting provides a program for international experts to discuss and compare research.
