Medical research is essential to develop new treatments and therapies for stroke so that patients in the UK can get the best possible care. Clinical trials are conducted to test whether a new medical intervention is safe and effective and these trials often rely on the participation of volunteer stroke survivors.
showcase your research results or service delivery innovations to over 1,400 stroke care professionals.

Amazing Brains: Research to Recovery. Previously known as our Keynote Lecture, our event took taking place on Wednesday, 15 May 2019, at the Science Museum in central London.
Many stroke survivors use art in their recovery and each year, through our Christmas Card Competition, a stroke survivor’s artwork is made into a limited edition Christmas card and sold in our range to raise vital funds for stroke survivors across the UK.
Spatial neglect is caused when damage to the brain after stroke means that it no longer received information about one side of the body and/or world. Stroke survivors with spatial neglect might not be aware of anything happening on one side of their body. This research will investigate a computer based version of a new treatment for spatial neglect after stroke.
This research will investigate the use of orthitics (for example, braces and splints) early on in a stroke survivor’s rehabilitation. The results will inform a larger study into early orthotic use after stroke.
