In the U21 3MT each University apart of the U21 network put forward their University winner to compete at a global level. Emma competed against 18 PhD students and was selected as runner up by the judging panel.

Emma’s talk “Draw me a clock...” addresses how we assess memory and thinking problems after a stroke and illustrates these problems using the example of the clock-drawing test. Her research aims to determine feasibility, accuracy and prognostic ability of different cognitive screening tests used in an acute stroke setting. Emma is supported by Dr Quinn’s ‘Assessing post-stroke psychology longitudinal evaluation (APPLE)’ clinical research study which is funded by the Stroke Association.
