- Clinical Senior Lecturer in Medicine (Honorary Consultant) (Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences)
My research is focussed on new methods of preventing and managing acute stroke. In particular, I aim to bridge the pre-clinical / clinical gap by identifying biomarkers for use in stroke research and to improve the measurements we use in clinical trials, thereby facilitating the evaluation of novel therapies.
I have received recently received research funding to advance Robotic mediated measurement and rehabilitation of limb function after stroke, imaging based biomarkers in high risk patients and have begun building a comprehensive biobank of well phenotyped stroke sufferers. I am deputy chair and outcomes manager for the endpoints committee for the large NIH funded CLEAR III IVH study, Vice Chair of an NHS Research Ethics Committee and Director of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutic teaching at the University of Glasgow Medical School.
