There have been reports of patients with COVID-19 experiencing neurological complications including stroke, but we don’t understand enough about this potential link. This call is focused on funding research addressing these questions to understand the potential causal links and mechanisms between COVID-19 and stroke.
Our festive run down of all the amazing things we've been able to fund following our partnership with Royal Mail.
Dr Paul Kasher is the Stroke Association HRH The Princess Margaret Lecturer at the University of Manchester. We’re delighted to say that Dr Kasher has been granted a Springboard award by the Academy of Medical Sciences to support his research.
Project Grants are our most popular funding stream and cover the whole spectrum of stroke research - from prevention and risk factors, through to treatment and rehabilitation in a clinical setting and longer-term in the community.
Non-invasive brain stimulation may help re-learning of movement after stroke
This study will collect robust data on blood pressure variability (BPV) in stroke patients, to understand how it is related to future stroke risk and recovery from stroke.
This research project aims to better understand how particular features of the CT scan can be used to make better treatment decisions for patients with ischaemic stroke, and whether we can accurately estimate the time since the stroke began.
