Frank J. Wolters
Clinical Research Fellow
Based at the Stroke Prevention Research Unit within the department, my research focuses on prevention and treatment of ischaemic and hemorrhagic stroke. By studying the epidemiology of TIA and minor stroke in particular, I aim to unravel determining factors in the risk, prevention and treatment of major events. Part of my research centres around patient behaviour in immediate response to cerebrovascular events, in an attempt to ensure rapid access to medical treatment for all patients following stroke or TIA. Furthermore, I explore the possibilities of novel MRI techniques for application in this group of patients.
