The Stroke Priority Setting Partnership is being guided by a Steering Group. Members include people affected by stroke, health and social care professionals, and those in supporting roles. Where two people are named for one organisation, they are sharing one place.
We have several partner organisations which we co-fund research with, as well as other organisations we work with to increase the focus on stroke research.
On February 11, at the International Stroke Conference (ISC 2015 in Nashville, USA) the latest findings were released from four, large studies investigating the effect of treating patients with mechanical clot retrieval.
Our wide range of research awards offer a variety of opportunities for stroke researchers to gain funding. Our Lectureship awards aim to establish the next generation of research leaders in all disciplines relevant to stroke, supporting mid-career researchers to become experts and train others in their research fields.
As part of our five-year research strategy, we have made a commitment to working with others to achieve a clear vision about the future priorities for stroke research.
The Childhood Stroke Project is a collaboration between the Stroke Association and the Evelina London Children's Hospital.
For over thirty years the Stroke Association has invested in research that has changed the lives of stroke survivors just like Karen. But the coronavirus pandemic has caused massive disruption to stroke research, and we’ve seen a dramatic reduction in our income.
The International Stroke Conference (ISC) 2018 took place in Los Angeles (24-26 January).
The ISC is the world's largest meeting dedicated to the science and treatment of stroke and its effects. Check out some of the highlights from 2018.
The first day of the European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC) 2017 in Prague included some truly inspiring scientific sessions. These included reporting from the DAWN study which suggests that more patients could be able to receive mechanical thrombectomy after stroke.
