Cambridge Stroke Reseach


The Cambridge University Stroke Research Group is based in the Clinical Neurosciences Department and undertakes both experimental and clinical research, on various aspects of stroke ranging from prevention to neurorehabilitation. Much of our research is translational.


Research interests of the group include:

Our research is closely linked, and co-located, with a comprehensive clinical stroke programme in Addenbrooke’s Hospital. This includes a dedicated Hyperacute Stroke Unit, the Lewin Stroke Rehabilitation Unit, and a daily TIA service. We run a National referral service for patients with monogenic forms of stroke, particularly CADASIL.
