Career Summary

Biography

Dr Spratt leads the stroke translation laboratory within the school of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy, and also works as a clinical neurologist at John Hunter Hospital. He sees his role primarily as 'bridging the gap' in translational stroke research, with the aims of moving promising therapies from the laboratory into clinical use, and of answering those important clinical questions best addressed with laboratory research. His group is part of the Hunter Medical Research Institute Centre for Brain and Mental Health stroke stream and work closely with clinical, imaging and epidemiological researchers from this stream.
