I joined the Stroke Research Group as a Research Assistant in August 2019. My role was to coordinate and recruit for the UK Familial Cerebral Small Vessel Disease trial, investigating hereditary forms of stroke.
In April 2021 I started my PhD in the group, supervised by Professor Hugh Markus. My PhD project will investigate cognition and fatigue in genetic and sporadic small vessel disease in the UK Familial dataset, using genetics and Neuroimaging features.
As well as coordinating and recruiting to the UK Familial trial, I am also involved in the Rates, Risks and Routes to Reduce Vascular Dementia (R4VaD) trial led by the University of Edinburgh. This study aims to look at progression to Dementia over at least two years after stroke. For this study, I coordinate the 6-week MRI scans and follow ups for patients recruited at Addenbrooke’s. These MRI scans will provide exciting data on Neuroimaging features that might be related to progression to Dementia.
I also run the social media for the International Journal of Stroke.
