Personal profile


Adrian Parry-Jones is a Consultant Vascular Neurologist at the Manchester Centre for Clinical Neurosciences, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and holds a Stroke Association Margaret Giffen Reader Award.


Adrian trained in Medicine at the University of Manchester and was awarded an MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship (2003-06) to undertake his PhD. Alongside his clinical training in Neurology and Stroke Medicine, he continued to develop his research interests as an NIHR Clinical Lecturer (2009-14). He has been a Consultant Neurologist since 2014 and held an NIHR Clinician Scientist Award from 2015-20. He is currently supported by a Stroke Association Margaret Giffen Reader Award (2020-24) to pursue a programme of  research aimed at improving outcomes for those affected by intracerebral haemorrhage.

Research interests

Adrian's research is focused on improving outcomes after intracerebral haemorrhage, a devastating form of stroke with poor outcomes and few treatments. His NIHR award funded an early phase, multicentre observational study embedded in the MISTIE III trial of minimally invasive surgery, a  multiparametric PET/MR imaging study and a clinical trial, all aimed at understanding the therapeutic potential of modulating the inflammatory response to intracerebral haemorrhage.

He also leads a programme of work combining implementation science and health informatics to improve patient outcomes after stroke, with work focused on improving outcomes after intracerebral haemorrhage by ensuring optimal delivery of standard care and improving pre-hopsital recognition of stroke.
