Lived-experience advisor: cell therapy for acute stroke

Who it’s for: Survivors of stroke, family members or carers
What it involves: Join a research team
Where: Online (anywhere)


Researchers from La Trobe University are looking at a novel treatment of intravenous human amniotic epithelial cells to see whether this reduces disability after an acute ischemic stroke.

They are seeking members of the community with a lived experience of stroke to advise on the study design, participant information and consent forms, and study outcome measures.


  • Lived experience of having a stroke, or caring for someone and/or being the medical decision maker for someone who has had a stroke.
  • Able to read and understand a clinical trial synopsis and participant information and consent forms.


Working directly with senior members of the research team, the lived experience advisor will provide advice about the study design during its planning and pre-ethics submission stages.
