Research in Dr Clarkson’s lab focuses on post-stroke neuroprotection and regeneration and repair mechanisms.
My research is directed at promoting recovery of function following a stroke and other neurological conditions. The approaches used involve novel drug therapies and stem cells to enhance brain repair processes. To overcome the issues with drug-brain delivery we are encapsulation our drugs and cells into hydrogels and biofilms for direct and controlled delivery into the brain.
