Stroke, Cognition and Elderly Care
Stroke is the commonest cause of adult disability and is a major cause of death in the western and developing world. We lead clinical trials of acute treatments for stroke and novel preventative measures for stroke. We collaborate closely with colleagues throughout the USA and Europe on novel approaches for treatment of brain bleeding episodes and on hypothermia as a treatment for stroke. We work closely with industry on all aspects of trials, from planning through data monitoring, analysis and reporting. We founded and run the VISTA collaboration, an academic led archive of clinical trial data, which provides access to high quality data to help explore and design new studies to help patients with stroke.
