NIPC Stroke Prevention Bursary
Every year, 15 million people worldwide suffer a stroke. Nearly six million die and another five million are left permanently disabled.
Keeping in line with our goal to address priority health needs by driving cardiovascular research, the NIPC are now accepting research proposal applications for its Stroke Prevention Bursary. The aim of the bursary is to support work that focuses on stroke prevention and in particular, the detection and early diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation which is one of the most common irregular heart rhythms and is a major risk factor for stroke.
The successful application will receive a bursary of €5,000 which will be presented at the NIPC's National Prevention Conference on November 5th 2016.
The closing date for receipt of completed application forms is: 5pm, Friday 30th September 2016.
