Ischemic stroke is one of the leading causes of adult disability worldwide. The primary reason for the lasting functional impairment following stroke is the brain’s limited ability to regenerate after an injury.Treatment measures, such as systemic delivery of drugs and growth factors are limited by the blood-brain barrier and off-target effects. Recently, localised delivery by biopolymer hydrogels has gained significant attention to overcome this problem.

The aim of my PhD project is to design and optimise a biopolymer hydrogel to be used as a scaffold to regenerate brain tissue following stroke.
