We anticipate a shortfall of £1.5 million in our funding programme this year to resume current research and support vital new projects. This could have a catastrophic knock-on effect for stroke research and delay access to important new life-changing treatments that allow people to rebuild their lives after stroke.
There is evidence that during the coronavirus pandemic fewer people have been recorded to have transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or stroke. That’s why the Stroke Association is urging people to continue to act fast and call 999 if they experience signs of stroke.
A response to reports in the news about small, early studies that make it look like the coronavirus may be causing strokes.
If you have been affected by stroke, this is your chance to ask any questions you would like research to try to answer.
We want to support the next generation of stroke research leaders to continue to improve stroke care and the lives of people affected by stroke in the years to come. We’re proud to introduce you to four researchers at the beginning of their careers who have recently been awarded Stroke Association research fellowships.
A new report published today shows that stroke research remains severely underfunded compared to the devastating impact it has on people’s lives. The UK Health Research Analysis 2018 also shows stroke research receives much less funding than many other areas of health research.
Pre-doctoral Clinical Academic Fellowships are for healthcare professionals in England to develop an application for a doctoral level (e.g. PhD) training Fellowship, and to develop the skills they need to be a competitive applicant for this type of funding. This award has been made to Jennifer Crow.
This research will develop a new self-management programme for stroke survivors with aphasia and their families, to help them to adjust to and manage their lives after stroke.
This research aims to improve outcomes for Intracerebral Haemorrhage (ICH) patients by developing new emergency treatments to reduce swelling in the brain after ICH, and improving the care they receive.
Spatial neglect is caused when damage to the brain after stroke means that it no longer received information about one side of the body and/or world. Stroke survivors with spatial neglect might not be aware of anything happening on one side of their body. This research will investigate a computer based version of a new treatment for spatial neglect after stroke.
