Public lecture: taking stroke research from the lab bench to the kitchen table
February 9, 2012
Dr. Jared Clarke will be presenting “Translational Studies: Taking Stroke Research from the Lab Bench to the Kitchen Table” at Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine in the Health Sciences Centre lecture theatre B 1-2 p.m., Friday, Feb. 10.
 
This presentation will focus on how stroke research at Memorial has pursued improved recovery for stroke survivors and how research from different fields uniquely impact practice. From a career perspective, it will also provide a vignette on Dr. Clarke’s recent transition from the realm of biomedical science to community-based research. 
 
While much of his previous research has centered on the neural correlates of recovery following stroke and cerebrovascular disease, his current interests involve examining the experiences of stroke survivors who continue to live independently in Newfoundland & Labrador.
 
Dr. Clarke has served on numerous provincial and national committees related to stroke research strategies and the development of key training initiatives for young researchers in the fields of stroke, neuroscience and aging.
 
Dr. Clarke’s presentation is open to the public and is part of the speaker series within the Division of Community Health and Humanities in the Faculty of Medicine.
