To test if using newly developed "recovery curves" can be used to improve the quality of hospital care and recovery for stroke patients
Do Naturally Produced Cells in the Brain Contribute to Repairing the Damage Done by Stroke?
The importance of variability in blood pressure after acute stroke
This research is focused on assessing the relationship between the variability of the blood flow through the blood vessels supplying the brain, and the risk of stroke in patients who have already had a stroke or “mini-stroke” (TIA) in the past.

Can a virtual-reality-home help stroke survivors do better at home?
Could an ARNI-based rehabilitation approach benefit stroke survivors?
A research project to find out if a ‘polypill’ can help reduce the chance that people who have had a stroke will have a heart attack or another stroke.
Inflammation is an important defence mechanism that the body uses in response to injury or infection. However, it can also be highly damaging to the brain directly after stroke. This study will investigate whether adult stem cells can be transformed and used to reduce inflammation in the brain after stroke, and promote recovey.
Pain in the shoulder is a common problem after stroke. As well as causing distress through pain and lost sleep, it prevents rehabilitation of the arm and hand. This study will identify ‘who’, ‘when’ and ‘how’ to treat people with painful shoulders after stroke more effectively, and should lead to better outcomes for them.
