The Heart and Stroke Foundation Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery (CPSR) is a joint initiative of the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Canada’s leading stroke recovery research centres. Through this unique model of collaboration, partner institutions are investing in shared platforms and infrastructure, training the next generation of scientific leaders, and identifying targeted research in order to restore lives affected by stroke disability. In fact, the CPSR approach is so innovative that it is being studied by other disease groups and emulated by research teams around the world.
The CPSR catalyzes collaborative research to identify game-changing therapies and approaches in stroke recovery. It mobilizes clinical trials to ensure widespread adoption of new therapies, and it is committed to having an impact.
Stroke disability is a huge public health issue in Canada. The number of Canadians living with long-term disability from stroke is expected to increase by 80 per cent to 725,000 people in the next two decades.
In addition to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the CPSR includes the University of Ottawa, University of British Columbia, University of Calgary, Sunnybrook Research Institute, Baycrest, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, and Memorial University of Newfoundland.
