STROKOG Scientific Steering Committee

CHeBA Consortia - STROKOG
STROKOG is a consortium of longitudinal studies of cognitive disorders following stroke, TIA or small vessel disease. Developed under the auspices of VASCOG (Society for the Study of Vascular Cognitive and Behavioural Disorders), it is the first international effort to harmonise work on post-stroke dementia.

The STROKOG Scientific Steering Committee is formed to lead the scientific agenda of the consortium and provide ongoing support and governance. It comprises of one representative from each of the contributing studies, generally the lead investigator or a delegate. Below is a list of current members as of January 2018.
