Excellent in Stroke Care

Head of Excellence In Stroke Care

Professor Silke Walter

Prof. Walter is an Honorary Visiting Professor at Anglia Ruskin University and the Vice Chair of the Department of Neurology at Saarland University.

Her group pioneered the worlds first Mobile Stroke Unit that delivers pre-hospital care at the site of emergency*.

Within Neuroscience and Vascular Simulation we conduct research in the field of pre-hospital care (1), imaging (2), software assisted diagnosis (3) and endovascular stroke treatment (4).

We also advise on the set up of interventional services around the world and in different clinical environments (5) and provide training in imaging and interventional stroke treatment using a high-end simulation environment.
