Small Vessel Disease (SVD) is a condition that affects the small blood vessels in the brain, and it can lead to stroke and dementia. This research programme hopes to increase our understanding of how SVD develops, leading to new ways to investigate SVD and test drugs which may help treat it.
If you are of African Caribbean origin you may have a higher risk of stroke than other people in the UK. But there are things you can do to stay healthy and avoid a stroke.
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by disease or injury. This causes the structure of the brain to change, leading to the loss of some brain cells.

People with stroke due to brain haemorrhage have swelling around the haemorrhage on their brain scan. More swelling worsens recovery. No treatment improves outcome after this swelling.
The programme will use biological information about cells and molecules, and information from patients, to design a study of treatment for swelling after brain haemorrhage.
If you are of African or Caribbean origin, you may have a higher risk of stroke than other people in the UK due to health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and sickle cell disease. This guide explains more about your risk of a stroke, and what you can do to reduce your risk.
Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is a type of stroke, which is caused by bleeding in the brain, ultimately leading to brain damage, disability and often death. We currently know very little about the biological changes that occur in the brain after intracerebral haemorrhage.
We organise the largest multidisciplinary stroke conference and exhibition in the UK, bringing together professionals from all stages of the stroke pathway to learn the latest developments in research and practice.
Can using a tissue sample from the buttock help us understand the main genetic cause of stroke?
These summaries of our completed research projects highlight what work was undertaken, which aims were achieved and where the research is going next.
