From Jillian Hosie
Wednesday, 11 December 2013
Malcolm Macleod, Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences; and Professor Karen
Horsburgh, Centre for Neuroregeneration discuss exciting new approaches to
modelling stroke in the laboratory, some of the new treatments that are being
developed in the laboratory, and how these are being brought forward for use
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.
