Nicholas Evans

Nick is a Clinical Research Fellow and Honorary Specialist Registrar in the Stroke Research Group at the University of Cambridge. His research interests are atherosclerosis and recovery after stroke. His first experience of strokes was seeing his grandmother after she had suffered one when he was a child. By the time he was a medical student, 15 years later, Nick was struck by how little progress there had been in stroke care. However, the last decade has seen significant advances in research, treatment and rehabilitation, and it is truly an exciting time to be involved in the field. He hopes that over the next few decades we can continue to improve people’s recovery from strokes – or, better still, prevent strokes happening in the first place.
