The first NIHR Stroke Research Workshop took place this week, and was hosted at the University of Cambridge.
We heard exciting talks from a range of leaders in the field and early career stroke researchers. As well as the scientific programme, the event was an excellent networking opportunity for the UK stroke research community as a whole.
This week we ran our first dedicated Service User Review Panel (SURP) training day, which was an opportunity for SURP members new and longer serving to receive the latest guidance in lay review, and to network too.
Stenting of the carotid arteries (running up the sides of the neck) is a common surgical procedure to reduce the risk of stroke. Stenting involves inserting a metal mesh into the artery to help widen it and improve blood flow. However, a new study published in the journal Neurology suggests that stenting of the vertebral arteries (that run up the neck behind the carotid arteries) appears safe too.
Last week, our lecturers attended two training days at our head office, at Stroke Association House, London. These form part of a schedule of activity designed to ensure they have the skills, and support needed to succeed in becoming the next generation of research leaders.
We’re excited to announce that we've been selected to go through to the staff vote stage for the ISS Facility Services charity of the year partnership.
Published online first in the journal Neurology, a new study investigates the effectiveness of tools used to predict recovery of patients after stroke.
We have recently endorsed a new book list for people living with long term conditions and their carers.
