Browse the list below to find projects relevant to you, in your area or online, and help advance stroke research in Australia.

How you can contribute depends on the project. It could be:

  • helping researchers figure out what questions to ask;
  • joining a working group to oversee a project;
  • sharing your views and experience in a survey; or
  • testing new treatments in a clinical trial to find out what works.


Sometimes, getting involved in research may allow you to access to emerging therapy you wouldn’t otherwise be able to get. Involvement may also be part of your stroke recovery plan.
