Caroline Lovelock

Senior Clinical Lecturer, St George's, University of London

I was appointed to St George's in 2009 as a clinical neurologist with an academic interest in stroke. I qualified in medicine at the University of Otago in New Zealand and started specialty training in neurology in Australia, before moving to the UK to work at the Royal Free Hospital, London, as an overseas clinical fellow in neurology.

I subsequently joined the Stroke Prevention Research Unit in University of Oxford as a research fellow, where I developed my interest in stroke epidemiology.

My current research interests include identifying factors associated with early neurological deterioration following stroke and in particular intracerebral haemorrhage, where a diseased blood vessel bursts, allowing blood to leak inside the brain, studying time trends in the incidence and clinical outcomes of intracerebral haemorrhage, and the epidemiology of cerebral microbleeds, which occur in people with cerebrovascular disease and dementia, and in normal ageing.
