Cost – £25,300

Stroke is the 4th leading cause of death and there are 152,000 strokes a year in the UK accounting for 11% of all deaths.

The long term goal of this research project is to generate a vaccine that will reduce death and disability from stroke. The project requires various pieces of research equipment costing a total of £25,316, for which we are fundraising. The research plan is for numerous experiments to be carried out within an 18 month period and that the results from these will attract funding from the Medical Research Council for the next stage of testing. An effective and safe vaccine would have an immense beneficial impact on the lives of stroke patients and their families, and we are very proud to be fundraising for this initiative.
