Congratulations to Professor Martin Dennis (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) who was awarded the inaugural BASP President's Award for excellence in stoke practice, research and training at the UK Stroke Forum 2018 last week.
Congratulations to Mark Rodrigues (Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) who was recently awarded the Scottish Radiological Society Anne Hollman Medal. This medal is awarded annually by the Scottish Radiological Society for the best oral research or audit presentation by a radiology trainee. Mark's presentation was about how we can use routine imaging along with genetics to help diagnose the underlying cause of intracerebral haemorrhage.
Dr Mark Rodrigues, Professor Rustam Al-Shahi Salman (both Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences) and colleagues have published findings indicating that detecting the cause of the deadliest form of stroke could be improved by a simple blood test added alongside a routine brain scan. Their findings suggest that a genetic test for APOE, combined with a CT scan, could be used to detect stroke caused by intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH).
A major study investigating links with dementia is being led by Professor Joanna Wardlaw and colleagues at the University of Edinburgh, in collaboration with 9 UK universities. The £1.2 million project aims to improve how doctors identify and treat dementia that occurs following a stroke.
