New stroke research centre opens in Oxford

International Edu News

Research into strokes and vascular dementia has taken a major step forward with the official opening of the Wolfson Centre for the Prevention of Stroke and Dementia (CPSD) in Oxford, based at the new Wolfson Building at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

The new centre is the only purpose-built clinical research centre looking specifically at stroke and dementia in the UK and will house an estimated 25% of all the UK’s active stroke researchers. Funding for the CPSD, and the new Wolfson Building, was provided by the Wolfson Foundation and the Wellcome Trust. 

The CPSD, part of the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences (NDCN), was officially opened by Emeritus Professor of Medical Neurology, Charles Warlow, the neurologist who first developed stroke research in the UK. The CPSD is funded by the Wolfson Foundation, the Wellcome Trust and the University of Oxford. Many of the researchers based at the centre are funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.
