Preclinical research

Our pre-clinical research follows stringent guidelines, addressing the historical challenges of varied protocols. The unique translational approach seamlessly integrates pre-clinical insights into clinical practice, expediting development and optimization. With a commitment to fostering interdisciplinary collaboration, CanStim provides comprehensive training programs, including lab exchanges among preclinical sites. This approach ensures that the next generation of researchers is equipped to explore innovative avenues of stimulation in preclinical models of stroke recovery.
