CADASIL is one of the most common genetic causes of stroke and dementia. Currently there is no treatment for CADASIL. In this study, human stem cells will be generated from a piece of skin donated by patients with CADASIL. From these stem cells, smooth muscle cells (SMCs) will be generated in a tissue culture dish in the lab.
Using genetics to understand why disease of the small blood vessels in the brain occurs.
Using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to enable activation of the damaged part of the brain to be more active in the recovery period after a stroke
The Stroke Association is holding this workshop to set the priorities for vascular dementia research in the UK.
Junior Research Training Fellowship: Christine Hazelton
There is evidence that during the coronavirus pandemic fewer people have been recorded to have transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or stroke. That’s why the Stroke Association is urging people to continue to act fast and call 999 if they experience signs of stroke.
‘Supported self-management’ is the help and support offered to stroke survivors and their families after they have left hospital. This research will look at what does and doesn’t work to help stroke survivors and their families to self-manage.
Postgraduate fellowship: What is the impact of damaged thinking ability caused by a spontaneous bleed in the brain?
What maintains stroke survivors’ continued use of self-managed computer therapy for aphasia?
In partnership with Alzheimer's Society and the British Heart Foundation, we are delighted to announce our funding of three new awards in vascular dementia research. This constitutes a combined investment of £2.2 million into a key area of unmet need.
