This year, the UK Stroke Assembly North event was held in Manchester. On day two, the morning plenary was all about stroke research, including how patients can get involved in shaping it.
We believe in life after stroke. That’s why we actively campaign for better stroke care, working with politicians of all parties to ensure stroke remains high on the political agenda. It's why we fund research into finding new treatments, and also ways of reducing the risk of stroke across the UK. Find out what we're upto currently in Scotland.

The European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC) 2018 is currently on from 16-18 May in Gothenburg, Sweden. The first day of ESOC included some truly inspiring scientific sessions, including the WAKE-UP trial, RIGHT-2 trial and CROMIS-2 trials.
The CROMIS-2 study investigated whether signs of small brain bleeds on routine brain scans can help us understand which ischaemic stroke patients with atrial fibrillation are at increased risk of a bleed in the brain when on anticoagulant ‘blood thinning’ drugs.
