The Prize, announced last night at St James’s Palace, London, recognises the Unit's outstanding work in preventive medicine. The Unit was founded by Professor Peter Rothwell. In little over a decade, it has revolutionised clinical practice in stroke prevention, ranging from emergency treatment of “threatened” stroke to more effective use of surgery (carotid endarterectomy – removal of a blockage in the carotid artery) to prevent stroke.
