Rustam Al-Shahi Salman's picture

I am a professor of clinical neurology at the University of Edinburgh and an honorary consultant neurologist in NHS Lothian. I lead the Research to Understand Stroke due to Haemorrhage (RUSH) programme, which is dedicated to improving the outcome for adults who have diseases that may cause, or have caused, intracranial hemorrhage. I also care for people with these conditions, audit their care, and help undergraduate and postgraduate students to develop and answer research questions within the RUSH programme. As president of the British Association of Stroke Physicians (BASP) 2020-2021, I led the association to join the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change, created a new Sustainability Lead post on the BASP Executive Committee, and co-wrote a Commentary in The Lancet about a strategy to decarbonise clinical trials.
