About Us

Stroke Research

We are currently recruiting for five active trials, but two are particularly popular.  One is a health questionnaire, looking at activity and lifestyle before a stroke or TIA, compared to 6 months later.  The other is a blood trial lasting 10 years, looking at DNA in the blood to see if there are any "clues" there to indicate stroke likelihood.

We are in the process of setting up new trials which will provide us with a full and varied portfolio covering the Stroke speciality.  One of these trials is looking at the effects of starting blodd thinning anticoagulants in people who have survived a brain haemorrhage and have an irregular heart beat (known as atrial fibrillation).  We also have an exciting new study coming soon which is looking to develop a computerized algorithm to assist in the planning of each patient's care pathway.  It will aim to predict stroke outcomes by comparing a large number of scan images from patients who have suffered an ischemic stroke.

If you are interested in finding out  more about the stroke research team or want to get in touch regarding using our team in your research please get in touch with our Research Delivery Facilitator, Laura Howe.
