Understanding the difficulty in controlling emotions after stroke
Our Research Strategy, the research we fund, how to apply for funding, how to get involved in research, and our research news and events.
The overall purpose of this research is to make laboratory stroke experiments more reliable and useful for informing how to design human clinical trials with a higher chance of success.
Can training memory and attention on a home computer-task reduce spatial awareness problems after stroke?
As a key role in the organisation, the Research Director will lead the implementation of the Stroke Association’s research strategy which was signed off by the Board in 2019.
Stroke survivors often have very individual hopes for the future, in terms of the goals they would like to achieve. This research will develop and test a Goal setting and Action Planning (G-AP) approach to achieving personal goals through community rehabilitation.
Stroke survivors, carers, family members and friends are experts in what it's like to experience and live with stroke. People affected by stroke are involved in many areas of our work, from helping to decide what research we fund, to collaborating with the researchers we fund on their studies. Find out how you can get involved to help shape stroke research in the future.
Our 5 year research strategy demonstrates where our vision lies and how we aim to get there.
The Stroke Association is proud to fund key research to answer questions of the utmost importance to the stroke community.
The first NIHR Stroke Research Workshop took place this week, and was hosted at the University of Cambridge.
We heard exciting talks from a range of leaders in the field and early career stroke researchers. As well as the scientific programme, the event was an excellent networking opportunity for the UK stroke research community as a whole.
