On Tuesday 1st September 2015, the Chief Scientist Office and the Stroke Association celebrated their partnership in building stroke research capacity in Scotland with the joint funding of two new research awards.
Published online first in the journal Neurology, a new study investigates the effectiveness of tools used to predict recovery of patients after stroke.
Published in the journal, Lancet Neurology, a new study suggests that understanding stroke severity, as well as time to treatment, is key to delivering effective and safe thrombolysis treatment.
A panel of independent experts has decided that alteplase, a clot-busting drug often used to treat strokes is safe and effective under current guidelines.
This research will produce an assessment of functional, everyday reading. The assessment will help therapists working with people with aphasia to identify why the person is finding it difficult to read and monitor the effects of treatment.

The International Stroke Conference is taking place in Los Angeles next week (24-26 January 2018).
It is the world's largest meeting dedicated to the science and treatment of stroke and its effects.
As well as exciting stroke research, the conference will also present the latest in international development and stroke.
Co-funded by the Stroke Association, a new review of the research into NIBS (non-invasive brain stimulation) for the recovery of leg movement and walking suggests that although it can bring about changes in leg function, the design of existing studies are very different, making it difficult to determine its effectiveness.
