Changing What's Possible for Stroke Survivors

At the Stroke Recovery Research Center (SRRC), we’re focused on improving stroke survivors’ quality of life through research. Our team is made up of scientists, doctors, engineers, and therapists at the Medical University of South Carolina. We are committed to finding new ways to improve stroke recovery. We research how changes happen in the brain due to stroke and rehabilitation. This informs how we can create and use new technology and therapy for stroke survivors everywhere.

Our Research

Our studies focus on many areas of stroke recovery. We study recovery of hand and arm use, walking, balance, strength, speech, thinking skills, sensation, depression, and fatigue. We are studying many new techniques in brain stimulation, brain imaging, rehab therapy, and exercise.  

To find out more about the individual studies currently recruiting stroke survivors, you may visit the South Carolina Research Studies Directory.

How to Get Involved

The SRRC maintains a Registry for Stroke Recovery (RESTORE), a list of people interested in participating in our research. In RESTORE, we collect contact information, medical and stroke history and any problems caused by the stroke. After enrolling, our teams will be able to use this information to invite you to enroll in studies that may interest you.
