(MRC DTP) Understanding how Immune mediated pathways contribute to cognitive decline after stroke (the Stroke-IMPaCT study)

Stroke is a major cause of death and disability worldwide. In stroke survivors one of the most distressing complications is post-stroke cognitive decline, which occurs in up to a third of individuals within five years and impacts significantly on quality of life. Read more

Post stroke visual impairment: improving our risk assessment and service and care

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in the UK. Visual impairment is common in stroke affecting two thirds of all stroke survivors of which many are permanent and severe visual impairments. Read more

Developing a New Model for Vascular Stroke using Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSC) with the HDAC9 Risk Genetic Variant

A quarter of all stroke is classified as large artery stroke, most of which are attributed to atherosclerosis. Together with conventional risk factors, there is evidence that a strong heritable genetic component contributes to large artery stroke risk. Read more

(MRC DTP) Unravelling the role of microglial interleukin-1alpha on neuronal activity and functions during cerebrovascular inflammation after stroke

Interleukin-1 (IL-1) drives inflammation after stroke, contributing to brain damage and poorer outcome. Blocking IL-1 actions with the IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra) is beneficial in pre-clinical stroke models, and studies in stroke patients show that IL-1Ra is safe and may improve clinical outcomes.

(MRC DTP) Characterisation of longitudinal peripheral immune cellular changes in vascular dementia

Stroke is a major cause of death and disability worldwide. In stroke survivors one of the most distressing complications is dementia, which occurs in up to a third of individuals within five years and impacts significantly on quality of life. Read more

Sarcopenia in stroke: Improving diagnosis, risk stratification, and intervention

Applications will close as soon as a suitable candidate has been found. Project description. There are more than 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK and stroke is a leading cause of disability and mortality in the UK (Collaborators, 2018). Read more

Immune/inflammatory mechanisms in stroke and vascular dementia

Stroke is a major cause of death and disability worldwide. In stroke survivors one of the most prevalent complications is post-stroke cognitive decline, which occurs in up to a third of individuals within five years and impacts significantly on quality of life. Read more

EASTBIO: A new strategy to reduce damage and death of brain cells in stroke

Supervisors. Dr Sergiy Sylantyev -. University of Aberdeen, Rowett Institute - s.sylantyev@abdn.ac.uk. Dr Hilary Carswell. - Strathclyde institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Science, University of Strathclyde - hilary.carswell@strath.ac.uk. Read more

Translational Studies and Mechanisms Of Disease In Stroke

We aim to research the underlying clinical and molecular epidemiology of Stroke in the emergency department. An understanding of molecular omics and immunology of stroke will lead to applications in molecular classification, screening, prevention, detection, diagnostics, prognostics and therapeutics.
