  Feasibility of delivering group psychological support to stroke survivors in community settings
  Dr E Patchwood, Prof A Bowen, Dr S Knowles
Applications accepted all year round
Supporting people to come to terms with persisting disability and life after stroke is a high priority for stroke research. There is an urgent need for evidence-based, clinically and financially effective psychological interventions that can be feasibly delivered for community-based stroke survivors.
  Genetics of stroke: Determining the underlying pathological reasons for stroke and comparing and contrasting those findings between Caucasian and South Asians.
  Prof P Sharma

Stroke is the commonest cause of disability, second largest cause of dementia and the third biggest cause of death in the UK. However, by 2050 the World Health Organisation has estimated that 80% of the worlds’ burden of stroke will lie between India and China.
  Stroke risk in a “healthy” patient: personalised modelling of thrombus formation and movement in the blood stream after catheter ablation therapy for atrial fibrillation
  Dr A de Vecchi, Dr O Aslanidi
Applications accepted all year round
Stroke is a common complication of atrial fibrillation (AF), which itself is the most widespread cardiac arrhythmia. However, the assessment of stroke risk is not straightforward in a large population of AF patients who are presented in sinus rhythm (SR), including patients after catheter ablation (CA) therapy, i.e.
