Prof Julie Bernhardt BSc, MSc, PhD

Division Head — Stroke

Professor Julie Bernhardt is head of the Stroke division and leads the AVERT Early Intervention Research Program. This includes a multidisciplinary team of researchers committed to the development and testing of new, rehabilitation interventions that aim to reduce the burden of stroke related disability. AVERT, the largest, international, acute stroke rehabilitation trial ever conducted, sits at the core of the program. Advancing understanding of how exercise-based interventions and task specific training influence learning and recovery after stroke is a key aim of the program. Julie completed a Churchill Fellowship in 2013 studying health architecture and environmental enrichment. A further aim of her group is to improve our understanding of how health environments influence recovery from illness. Julie is Director of Australia’s first NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Stroke Rehabilitation and Recovery, an exciting partnership to build capacity and research excellence in this exciting field.
