On Wednesday 28 June 2017, members of the University of Edinburgh's Stroke Research Group (SRG), both past and present, gathered to celebrate 30 years of stroke research in Edinburgh. There was an excellent turn out for the celebration, including Professor Emeritus Charles Warlow, and Peter Sandercock presented a nostalgic walk down memory lane before cutting the cake.

Joshua Dacre, postdoctoral researcher in the Centre for Integrative Physiology, was recently awarded joint first prize for his poster presentation in the graduate student category at the BNA2017 Festival of Neuroscience in Birmingham - congratulations Joshua!
More than 400 people in their 80s and 90s were reunited at a Lothian Birth Cohort (LBC) event on 04 June 2017. This reunion celebrated 70 years, to the day, since the LBC1936 participants first sat the Moray House Test as part of the Scottish Mental Survey 1947. The participants of the Lothian Birth Cohorts met with Professor Ian Deary (Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology) and colleagues behind the project to mark their achievements on the understanding of the ageing brain.
Professor Seth Grant (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences), Professor Douglas Armstrong (Informatics) and colleagues in the Centre Clincial Brain Sciences and at the Lilly Research Centre (Surrey), have analysed the molecules produced at synapses in various parts of the brain and found that varying compositions correspond to brain functions. The team found that this map can now bridge the gap between genetic studies and findings from brain imaging, shedding light on why smokers might develop a habit.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) is currently featured in the Royal College of Physicians 'Women in medicine: a celebration' exhibition. This is an exhibition of specially commissioned photographic portraits honouring contemporary and historical women in medicine.
Congratulations to Professor Joanna M. Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sceinces) who has been awarded the 2018 William M. Feinberg Award for Excellence in Clinical Stroke Lecture Award. The American Stroke Association honoured 10 scientists for their outstanding stroke research at the International Stroke Conference 2018.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Professor of Applied Neuroimaging and Honorary Consultant Neuroradiologist, University of Edinburgh) has been honoured with the Presidential Award, at the European Stroke Conference, 16-18 May 2017, in Prague.

Staying Sharp is a new ‘one-stop-shop’ on the Age UK website, developed in partnership with the Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology (CCACE) at the University of Edinburgh, where you can find out what you need to know about thinking skills in later life.
University of Edinburgh researchers, led by Prof. Craig Ritchie (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences), have joined forces to form a major brain imaging project - the TriBEKa consortium - looking at the first factors that determine risk of dementia. This project was launched on 14 July 2017 at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in London.
