Current Research

A large part of my group's research is investigating factors which lead to poor recovery post-stroke, such as age and infection; and on the mechanisms underlying post-stroke cognitive dementia, depression, fatigue and post-stroke pain. These are outcomes of stroke which are sorely understudied. Part of this research is carried out on clinical data in collaboration with Prof. Philip Bath, Stroke Professor at the University of Nottingham. In parallel to this we are examining ways to improve modeling of stroke in rodents, to improve welfare and increase the translational potential of the models. As such I co-organised the inaugural UK Preclinical Stroke Symposium, we are part of the EU Multi-Part consortium, which is developing the infrastructure carry out preclinical stroke trials over multiple sites, in multiple-countries, with the same rigor that clinical stroke trials are executed. I am also a member of the National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs) working group on animal models of stroke.
