This study will investigate the links between the immune system and cognitive decline after stroke. It is looking for people who have not had a stroke to act as ‘control participants’.
Results of this study will be used to inform the development of targeted treatments and improved recovery for people who have a stroke in the future.
The Stroke-Immune Pathways and Cognitive Trajectory (Stroke IMPaCT) study is funded by the Leducq Foundation. It is being carried out by a team of researchers led by Professor Craig Smith at Salford Royal in collaboration with The University of Manchester and Stanford University.
