Professor Stuart Allen - 'Regenerative Therapies in Stroke '
Brief synopsis: Stroke is a result of reduced blood supply to the brain, through either a clot or rupture of blood vessels in the brain. Despite exciting recent advances in acute treatments stroke still remains a leading cause of neurological disability. Many stroke survivors are left with persistent complications, both physical and cognitive. There remains therefore a continuing need to develop new approaches that will allow stroke survivors to regain function. In recent years our group has focussed on the potential of cell based regenerative therapies in rodent models of stroke and this seminar will present findings from this work, as well as discuss future plans.
