The Stroke Research Group undertakes both experimental and clinical research, on various aspects of Stroke ranging from prevention to neurorehabilitation. Much of our research is translational.
NIHR Stroke Research Workshop 2022
The 6th annual NIHR Stroke Research Workshop will be at Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s hotel, Sheffield on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th September 2022. There will be another exciting programme covering the full range of stroke research from clinical to basic science, and space for many submitted oral and poster abstracts, as well as a medical student bursary prize. Abstract submission closes on 18th July (more information about abstract submission here). Due to generous support from the NIHR, BASP and Stroke Association registration fees will be very low for trainees. More details of medical student bursaries available here. The programme and registration details are available here, please do save the date.
Research interests of the group include:
Pathophysiology and risk prediction in carotid artery disease
Cerebral small vessel disease and vascular cognitive impairment
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:
