The Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) in stroke rehabilitation

The Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) in Stroke Rehabilitation and Brain Recovery aims to transform the stroke research and practice landscape in Australia.

The CRE combines the expertise of researchers at The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, Newcastle’s Hunter Medical Research Institute and other leading institutions.

Our researchers have expertise in stroke rehabilitation, clinical trials, neuroimaging, neuropsychology, statistics and decision support, rehabilitation policy development and research translation.

Stroke research areas covered by the CRE include basic science, imaging, clinical trials, implementation research and data linkage.

Professor Julie Bernhardt from The Florey leads the CRE which is funded by a grant from the National Health and Medical Research Council.
