Description

Inaugural lecture of Professor Cathy Stinear

"Predictions and unicorns – personalising stroke rehabilitation"

Promotion to professor at the University of Auckland is a mark of distinction, recognising professional and academic eminence at an international level.

Please join us in celebrating Professor Cathy Stinear's achievement at her inaugural lecture.

Abstract:
Stroke changes people’s lives forever. Most people will experience some recovery, but it’s hard to know how much, and how long it will take. Professor Cathy Stinear has created new tools for predicting recovery for individual patients, using biomarkers of key connections in the brain. Accurate predictions can be used to personalise rehabilitation and empower people affected by stroke. But implementing these tools in routine clinical care presents many challenges. Cathy will share her success thus far, with a story of serendipity, teamwork, difficult conversations, hope, and the occasional unicorn.

Biography:
Professor Cathy Stinear is a clinical neuroscientist whose research focuses on predicting and promoting recovery after stroke. She leads a team of clinicians and scientists based at Auckland City Hospital, translating research into practice for the benefit of patients and their families.
