On this page we will feature a series of videos filmed with members of our Stroke group, introducing and discussing a range of topics related to the investigations they're currently undertaking. This includes features that outline the positive impact the Melbourne Mobile Stroke Unit (MSU) has delivered since its launch in early November 2017, a project that would not have been possible without many valued collaborators and supporters, including Ambulance Victoria, Royal Melbourne Hospital, RMH Neuroscience Foundation, Stroke Foundation, The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health and the University of Melbourne.
New videos will be added as they become available.
