Abstract: Stroke is the third most common cause of death in men and the second most common in women according to the World Health Organization (WHO). In Malta 10.4% of all deaths were due to stroke. It is also the most common cause of severe disability with 1 in 4 men and 1 in 5 women expected to have a stroke by age 85. Current treatment options are extremely limited. Hence, there is a great need for new treatment strategies. Our goal is to better understand the mechanisms of astrocyte function in order to develop new treatments for stroke.
