Stroke is a devastating condition affecting people of all ages, causing death and long-term disability. It is a NHS research priority area and a research strength in the University of Manchester and our clinical partner, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.
The Manchester Stroke Research Group promotes interdisciplinary research in all aspects of stroke. Based at the University of Manchester, we work with stroke survivors and their carers, the general public, clinicians and service commissioners, and clinical and non-clinical scientists to reduce the burden of stroke. By working with people with experience of stroke, we can ensure our research is focused on the issues that matter most to them.
Almost uniquely our research:
- combines life sciences and interdisciplinary clinical research;
- covers all clinical subtypes of stroke (including ischaemic stroke, intracerebral haemorrhage and subarachnoid haemorrhage)
- includes all stages of clinical care and service organisation
Our research links with colleagues across the University, but most of our clinical academics are part of the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences. Our research includes:
- ‘basic science’ and medical/surgical research
- Faculty of Life Sciences
- Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences (FMHS): Centre for Vascular and Stroke (Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences)
- acute/chronic rehabilitation and long-term support
- implementation into clinical practice
