This project can help to improve research and care in stroke prevention so that healthcare professionals and health services can better treat and support people to prevent them from having a stroke.
This funding can help to support passionate and talented researchers to become leaders of the future.
This research builds on an existing UK study, looking at stroke in patients with and without COVID-19. The researchers look to understand the links between COVID-19 and stroke, and the effects of treatments.
This research can establish urgent and important information about the risk of stroke in COVID-19 patients and lead to improved treatments.
This study is investigating whether colchicine, a medication used to treat gout, could help to stop people who have previously had a stroke or TIA from having further strokes.
Some people can’t have their blood pressure measured in their arm. This project will use data that has been collected through previous research studies to investigate the relationship between blood pressure measured in the arm and leg, and the risk of stroke.
This research is focused on assessing the relationship between the variability of the blood flow through the blood vessels supplying the brain, and the risk of stroke in patients who have already had a stroke or “mini-stroke” (TIA) in the past.
This fellowship will involve the study of the human eye to find out about the health of the brain’s small blood vessels and nerve connections in people who have recently had a stroke.
The study aims to develop and test a self-monitoring system of high blood pressure, tailored to the needs of stroke and TIA survivors.
This study is investigating how to make thoracic endovascular aortic stenting (TEVAR), treatment for thoracic aortic disease (TAD), safer by using extra protection devices.
