Dr Banerjee aims to set up three studies to improve our understanding of how damaging proteins in the brain may increase the risk of stroke. This can lead the way for researchers to find out how we can help more people avoid damage to their brain caused by these proteins.
This research will investigate 2000 drugs that are already known to be safe for use in humans to see if they could help reduce the amount of damage to the brain which an intracerebral haemorrhage (a type of stroke caused by a bleed in the brain) causes.
This project is part of a larger on-going study into Small Vessel Disease (SVD) after stroke. It will allow the researchers to invite some of the participants in this project back for more frequent brain scans and tests to help them to understand more about SVD after stroke.
Torpor is a natural state of reduced energy use and body temperature. This research will look at the effect of torpor on brain activity and function, and the amount of brain damage caused by ischaemic stroke.
The overall purpose of this research is to make laboratory stroke experiments more reliable and useful for informing how to design human clinical trials with a higher chance of success.
People with stroke due to brain hemorrhage have swelling around the hemorrhage on their brain scan. This programme is about understanding the effect of blood on brain cells, with a focus on finding treatments.
The aim of this research programme is to develop a human brain bank to support biomedical research into the pathophysiology of human SVD that may be used nationally and internationally.
This study will investigate whether adult stem cells can be transformed and used to reduce inflammation in the brain after stroke, and promote recovery.
This research on Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) will use zebrafish models so that we can gain a better understanding of how cells of the brain respond to the bleeding.
Small Vessel Disease (SVD) is a condition that affects the small blood vessels in the brain, and it can lead to stroke and dementia. This research programme hopes to increase our understanding of how SVD develops, leading to new ways to investigate SVD and test drugs which may help treat it.
