When will the event take place?

This year, the event will take place virtually on 27 May 2021, from 7.30-8.30pm.

What's the theme?

At the event, a series of speakers will discuss the disruption to stroke research and services caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and how our research is meeting the need to rapidly develop remote technologies in stroke care.  

This virtual event is part of our Save Research Campaign that will be running over Stroke Awareness month in May, and in June. Find out more.

Who will be speaking?

You will hear from researchers, stroke survivors and celebrity guests who will share their research and experiences of stroke, as our charity celebrates research that can rebuild lives.

Our researchers are listed below:

Dr Graham McClelland, MCPara, Research Fellow, North East Ambulance Service.

With a specific focus on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, Dr McClelland will discuss how his research can improve the use of telemedicine by paramedics and stroke consultants, and the benefits this can have to stroke patients. 

Dr Adrian Parry-Jones, Consultant Vascular Neurologist at the Manchester Centre for Clinical Neurosciences.

Dr Parry-Jones will focus on how his development and implementation of an app for healthcare professionals, used in the treatment of haemorrhagic stroke, can improve acute stroke care.

Professor Jane Marshall and Professor Stephanie Wilson at City University.

Prof. Marshall and Prof. Wilson will discuss how digital treatments and support for stroke survivors with aphasia can improve stroke rehabilitation, along with the benefits that research on this subject can have to stroke patients.
