Melbourne is renowned as a leading international hub for stroke research, a particular strength at the University of Melbourne. Research is particularly active at the Royal Melbourne and Austin Hospitals (including Melbourne Brain Centres at both hospital sites), and the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, underpinned by NHMRC program, the Medical Research Future Fund and project grant support. Two of the senior leaders have been past-presidents of the World Stroke Organisation and have led sequential program grants for over 20 years. There are a number of other internationally competitive professorial leaders in hospitals and institutes associated with the University of Melbourne.

Particular strengths include translational research, advanced neuroimaging, epidemiology, pre-hospital research in the Melbourne Mobile Stroke Unit, stroke rehabilitation and leadership in clinical trials. The principal investigators have been involved in leadership roles in virtually all the major advances in stroke therapy in the past 25 years.
