Project Grants are our most popular funding stream and cover the whole spectrum of stroke research - from prevention and risk factors, through to treatment and rehabilitation in a clinical setting and longer-term in the community.

Recently, the British Heart Foundation launched a campaign calling for more funding into stroke research, and outlined their commitment as a leading funder of stroke research.
