Keynote Lecture. One small vessel stroke? One giant problem for humankind.


The Stroke Association's Keynote Lecture is a prestigious event that showcases the latest advancements being made in stroke research.

Professor Joanna Wardlaw CBE, University of Edinburgh, delivered this year's Keynote Lecture at Lancaster House.

Professor Wardlaw addressed 'small vessel disease' which is the most common cause of vascular dementia. Although vascular dementia is the second most common form of dementia, for too long there has been insufficient research into this disease.
