The Stroke Research Group undertakes both experimental and clinical, on various aspects of Stroke ranging from prevention to neurorehabilitation. Much of our research is translational.
NIHR Stroke Research Workshop 2019
Registration is now open for the 3rd NIHR Stroke Research Workshop which will be held on 11 and 12 September 2019 at Chancellors Hotel and Conference Centre in Manchester.
This follows the highly successful first two workshops held at the University of Cambridge in 2017 and 2018. Due do generous support from NIHR, the Stroke Association and British Association of Stroke Physicians we can once again offer highly subsidised rates to trainees, both clinical and non-clinical.
The workshop promises to be a very exciting two days with an outstanding programme featuring leading national and international speakers. It also provides a great opportunity for exchanging ideas between experienced stroke specialists and early career researchers. The programme includes updates on the latest stroke research including sessions on brain haemorrhage, psychological and cognitive consequences of stroke, stroke prevention, blood brain barrier and small vessel stroke, stroke recovery, and the microbiome and stroke, as well as a special session targeted at trainees on navigating the research pathway.
There are a large number of slots for submitted oral abstracts as well as for posters and we encourage participants to submit their work as an abstract- Please submit abstracts of no more than 400 words by 12 July 2019 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
For further details the programme and registration follow above link
There are also fully funded (including travel and accommodation and registration) medical student bursaries- see link for more details; these close on 9th June 2019.
A Big Congratulations: Fellowships awarded in the Stroke Research Group
Dr Alex Granata has been awarded a Medical Research Foundation Mid-Career Researcher Fellowship. This is to focus on genetic causes of stroke affecting young adults. Alex will use it to develop her programme of work which uses iPSC models to investigate the pathogenesis of cerebral small vessel disease. This is the commonest type of monogenic stroke.
Dr Robin Brown has been awarded a Guarantors of Brain Clinical Research Fellowship. He will use this to fund a PhD which is looking at the mechanisms of disease progression in cerebral small vessel disease utilising both PET and MR imaging techniques.
Many congratulations to both of them.

Research interests of the group include:
Our research is closely linked, and co-located, with a comprehensive clinical stroke programme in Addenbrooke’s Hospital. This includes a dedicated Hyperacute Stroke Unit, the Lewin Stroke Rehabilitation Unit, and a daily TIA service. We run a National referral service for patients with monogenic forms of stroke, particularly CADASIL.
Research in the Group is funded by:
