From the laboratory to the clinic
Translational research is the aim of this team, which involves taking findings produced in the lab and converting them into treatments and therapies for people living with the devastating effects of neurological illness. The group is based in Auckland Hospital, which provides this unit with the unique opportunity of performing research in a clinical setting.
The team's major focus is on stroke, reflecting the current research interests of the group. This extends from epidemiology of stroke and transient ischemic attack, to new risk factors and acute therapies for stroke and new rehabilitation techniques.
