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.
‘Invisible impairments’ can make it difficult for stroke survivors to maintain a job, according to a study from the University of Cambridge and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
New research from Stroke Association Fellow, Dr Anna Kuppuswamy, suggests that feelings of limb heaviness after stroke are not related to actual muscle weakness.
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 Adrienne Cormican.
Yesterday was day two of this year's UK Stroke Assembly South event in Stansted, Essex, and researchers shared important insights into key areas of stroke research.
The ACTIVATE study aims to understand if it’s possible for stroke survivors to take part in an ‘auditory rhythmical cueing’ walking programme at home.
These summaries of our completed research projects highlight what work was undertaken, which aims were achieved and where the research is going next.
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.
The aim of this programme is to develop and test a new care pathway for paramedics to recognise the patients who are likely to have a large artery blockage, so that this group can be taken directly to the thrombectomy hospital.
Nurses are the largest group of health professionals working with stroke survivors. However, there is little evidence describing their specific role in stroke rehabilitation.
