After heart disease stroke is the biggest killer of Australians, it is also the largest cause of disability in our community.

The Florey dedicates significant resources to the study of stroke from a basic science level through to public health, rehabilitation and epidemiology. Investigations into neuroprotective and neuroregenerative drugs, advancing stroke care and predicting further incidence of stroke through biomarkers and imaging are part of our work.

Expanding the stroke diagnosis services through telemedicine services and examining the use of early rehabilitative movement post-stroke to offset the incidence of depression are other areas of investigation.
