Stroke Association Research Strategy

Our Research Strategy sets out a five-year research strategy (2014-2019) for the Stroke Association. Our vision is for a world where there are fewer strokes and those touched by stroke get the help they need. We believe in the power of research evidence to prevent stroke, save lives and enable stroke survivors to make the best recovery possible.

Twenty years ago, stroke research was largely neglected by other funding agencies. Through our early and continued investment, we have established a strong community of stroke researchers and healthcare professionals. The UK is now a world-leader in the field, second only to the USA. But there is still much to do; we want to build on what we have achieved so far.
