Saving Brains: Developing Effective Treatments for Stroke
From Rebecca Devon on May 2nd, 2017
Speakers: Professor Malcolm Macleod, Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences and Professor Karen Horsburgh, Centre for Neuroregeneration.
Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability, and most are caused by a blockage in the blood supply to part of the brain. Fundamental research can help develop drugs to treat stroke, but we are still a long way away from a cure.
Professors Horsburgh and Macleod discuss exciting new approaches to modelling stroke in the laboratory, some of the new treatments that are being developed, and how these are being brought forward for use with patients.
