SCIENTIFIC GROUP MEMBERS
Nick Ward (Chair, England)
Nick is Professor of Clinical Neurology & Neurorehabilitation at UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology and The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square. He leads the first dedicated upper limb neurorehabilitation programme in the UK. His work seeks to understand the mechanisms of recovery of movement after stroke to predict both optimal treatments and long term outcomes of upper limb impairment after stroke.
Tom Carmichael (USA)
Tom is a neurologist and neuroscientist in the Departments of Neurology and of Neurobiology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He has active laboratory and clinical interests in stroke and neurorehabilitation and how the brain repairs from injury. His laboratory studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms of neural repair after stroke and other forms of brain injury.
Margit Alt Murphy (Sweden)
Suresh Kumar (India)
Gert Kwakkel (The Netherlands)
Natasha Lannin (Australia)
Professor Natasha Lannin is based at Monash University in the Department of Neuroscience (Medicine) in a joint appointment with The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. She is an occupational therapist by professional background, and a Fellow of the American Occupational Therapy Foundation Academy of Research and the Occupational Therapy Australia Research Academy. She leads the Brain Recovery and Rehabilitation Research Group, and their research focuses on improving long-term outcomes for adults after stroke.
