Researchers in our Wolfson Centre for the Prevention of Stroke and Dementia are working to increase understanding of the causes of cerebrovascular disease and to improve the prevention of stroke and vascular dementia in routine clinical practice.

Stroke is the most common cause of acquired neurological disability and the risk is increasing in young adults.

We are raising money for:

  • An endowed lectureship in stroke
  • A doctoral training programme in stroke and vascular dementia
  • An existing project (Oxford Vascular Study) that has recruited all patients with stroke among about 100,000 of the Oxfordshire population for over 20 years and now needs funding for follow-up studies for the next ten years to maximise the research potential of this unique cohort
