Saving brains: developing new treatments for old diseases
Dr Malcolm Macleod is Reader and Head of Experimental Neuroscience at the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh and President of the European Stroke Research Network for Hypothermia. His broad area of neurological research is stroke, and specifically clinical trials testing the benefits of mild hypothermia in stroke patients. Other research focuses on the use of systematic review and meta-analysis of information from animal models of neurological disease to improve the effectiveness of the ways we develop new drugs.
