How It Works

About the Stroke Recovery Initiative

The Stroke Recovery Initiative connects people who have had a stroke with researchers who are working to develop new recovery methods.

Effective stroke research relies on matching stroke patients to the right clinical research studies, but it can take years to complete a new study or clinical trial. People who have had a stroke shouldn't have to wait. That's why the University of California, San Francisco, developed the Stroke Recovery Initiative.

More than 6,000 people from all over the U.S. have registered for the Stroke Recovery Initiative since 2015.


How It Works

Take the Survey: This survey helps us determine if you may be eligible for current or future research studies, including stem cell research. It takes about 30 minutes to complete.

If You're a Potential Match: After you take the survey, we'll review your information to see if there is a study that you might be eligible for. Some of our studies have sites all over the U.S. If we find a match, we'll connect you with study personnel for further screening.

Not a Match? If you're not a match for a current study, we will keep your information on file to match to new studies as they become available.

Advances in science and technology provide hope for developing new stroke recovery options. Let's discover them, together.

Current Research Study
