Acute Stroke Program

The Acute Stroke Research Group, founded in 1999, is embedded within the John Hunter Hospital Stroke Unit. The group are national and international leaders in the development of new strategies in acute stroke imaging and therapies. Research spans from experimental laboratory research through to community-based studies and health systems implementation. The generation of new knowledge and its translation to improve health care outcomes for stroke sufferers is being realised with the Hunter now being one of the international leading sites for implementation of clot busting therapies for stroke.
