Meet Julie, the face of our new campaign to reach new stroke survivors and their carers through GP surgeries.
Carotid artery narrowing causes about 15% of strokes of the type where blood clots block blood flow to the brain, and this study aims to find prevention for this.
Dr Banerjee aims to set up three studies to improve our understanding of how damaging proteins in the brain may increase the risk of stroke. This can lead the way for researchers to find out how we can help more people avoid damage to their brain caused by these proteins.
A haemorrhagic stroke is a stroke that is caused by bleeding in or around the brain. Although they are less common than strokes that are caused by a blockage, they can be much more serious.
Most strokes happen because of a blockage in an artery. A common cause of this is disease in the large carotid arteries in the front of your neck. This guide explains what can cause carotid artery disease and how it can be treated.
Around 15% of strokes are haemorrhagic (due to bleeding in or around the brain). This guide explains the two different types of stroke caused by a bleed, intracerebral and subarachnoid haemorrhage, and how they are diagnosed and treated.
Around 85% of strokes are due to a blocked blood vessel in the brain, known as an ischaemic stroke. This guide explains what an ischaemic stroke is, what can cause you to have one, and how it is usually diagnosed and treated.
Our lecturers lead innovative research projects, and support and mentor early career researchers to help establish a strong research community in the UK. Together, researchers can drive improvements in treatment and care for people affected by stroke.
Public Health Wales is reminding stroke survivors to get protected against flu with a free NHS vaccination if they haven’t had one yet this winter.
The Stroke Association has funded research to help understand what happens in the brain during a stroke, identify who is most at risk of stroke and how we can reduce their risk.
