Congratulations to Prof Rustam Al Shahi Salman, Dr Neshika Samarasekera (both Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) as well as other collaborators from Edinburgh, Manchester and Boston on being awarded a £0.44 million Stroke Association Priority Programme Award for 'Neuro-Inflammation after Cerebral Haemorrhage in Edinburgh’ (NICHE).
Launch the Cardiovascular Sciences-Neuroscience network. This event will bring together academic and clinical researchers from cardiovascular sciences and neuroscience to highlight work on vascular, inflammatory and metabolic mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction, the links between metabolic disease and brain disorders, and other aspects of brain metabolism.
Professors Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh), Karen Horsburgh (Centre for Neuroregeneration, University of Edinburgh) and Rhian Touyz (Institute of Cardiovascular & Medical Sciences, University of Glasgow) are guest editors on the recently released Clinical Science special edition on small vessels, dementia & chronic disease.

Edinburgh Neuroscience's Neuroscience Day is an annual day of talks and poster presentations from neuroscientists of all backgrounds at The University of Edinburgh. It is an opportunity for the clinicians, basic researchers and students at Edinburgh to meet and exchange ideas in a fun and informal setting. Over 300 researchers join us for a day of talks and posters. Highlights include the poster competition for PhD students, and the Annual Distinguished Lecture.
Join us for EdInburgh Neuroscience's 2018 annual Christmas Public Lecture and find out why our blood vessels are so critical to the health of our brains. Professor Joanna Wardlaw is one of Edinburgh's pioneering neuroscientists and a Principal Investigator in the new UK Dementia Research Institute at the University of Edinburgh.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences and ) and colleagues have published a study investigating treatments for preventing the recurrence of lacunar stroke, a condition which often occurs in small vessel disease, which can result in memory problems and dementia.
The University of Edinburgh is a world leading centre for small vessel disease (SVD) research. SVD causes a quarter of strokes and up to 45% of dementias. It is also a major risk factor for future stroke, dementia and depression.
We have a variety of postgraduate masters courses - research and taught - covering neuroscience-related areas, including distance learning courses. More information about these can be found at the individual programme websites.
Professor Joanna Wardlaw (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) and Dr David Dickie (Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences, University of Glasgow) have developed and published a new approach for quantifying brain injury from cerebral small vessel disease and brain atrophy into a single measure - the ‘brain health index’.
