Firstly, it was most humbling to receive this award for our programme of work designed to improve outcomes for patients with intracerebral haemorrhage, a devastating form of stroke.

Thirdly, this award reflects the superb clinical and research training delivered at the University Hospitals of Leicester and University of Leicester respectively.

Fourthly, I would like to thank the Dunhill Medical Trust for supporting the BREATHE-ICH study, a novel interventional study designed to improve outcomes for intracerebral haemorrhage patients. Lastly, I owe special thanks to the wonderful patients and their families who support our research and willingly volunteer to help improve our understanding of stroke pathologies.
