MarkVCID at International Stroke Conference 2018

On Jan 25, 2018, the AHA International Stroke Conference features the MarkVCID Consortium as a part of its 2 ½-day agenda covering over 1,500 presentations in 21 categories that emphasize basic, clinical and translational sciences.

The panel discussion entitled, “Marking Vascular Cognitive Impairment: MarkVCID” begins with an overview of the Consortium goals, science, and structure from MarkVCID Coordinating Center PI Steven M. Greenberg. The panel invites Consortium PI’s Danny JJ Wang (University of Southern California) to discuss multimodal MRI biomarkers and Donna Wilcock (University of Kentucky) to discuss fluid-based biomarkers of cerebral small vessel disease. Participants learn about the challenges and successes of developing shared protocols, validating across sites, and achieving multicenter reliability for the discovery of clinical trial-ready biomarkers. Co-moderators include Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Faculty Rebecca Gottesman and Lille University Neurology & Stroke Centre Lead Investigator Charlotte Cordonnier.

Sharing a perspective from outside the Consortium, Institute for Stroke and Dementia Research Director Martin Dichgans speaks about international biomarker programs and collaboration opportunities. [For more information about ISC, click here]
