Thousands of people are at risk of stroke because they fail to recognise the signs of a Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA, also known as mini-stroke), according to the findings of a new poll(i) launched today on World Stroke Day (29 October 2012).
Having a stroke is bad enough. But nobody should have to live in fear. We asked survivors about how they were feeling and what they were worried about after their stroke.
As part of our research programme, we fund exceptional candidates from stroke professional backgrounds to our prestigious Postgraduate and Postdoctoral Fellowship positions. Meet our new fellows for 2017.
The Stroke Priority Setting Partnership is being guided by a Steering Group. Members include people affected by stroke, health and social care professionals, and those in supporting roles. Where two people are named for one organisation, they are sharing one place.
Our Postdoctoral Fellowships (formerly called Senior Research Training Fellowships) are awarded to outstanding postdoctoral candidates from the nursing or allied health professions, and are intended to enable you to embark on an independent career in academic stroke research.
