Leading and emerging investigators from within and outside the immediate area of cerebrovascular disease have come together to explore the state–of–the–art and future directions of research and clinical practice leading to enhanced medical care in the acute treatment of ischemic stroke. The agenda highlights various facets of acute intervention and a number of unaddressed issues related to the medical setting of stroke that impact clinical outcomes and provide opportunities for improving treatment. The main goals are the generation of data–driven, multidisciplinary ideas, to explore ischemic stroke as a systemic disease related to other disease entities (hypertension, diabetes, and disorders of aging), and to better address the evolution of ischemic brain injury.
