Event Details

Professor Julie Bernhardt

A stroke is a common and devastating event but Forey research is changing the way  rehabilitation  is practised across the world. Come and hear how life skills can be regained.

Julie is the Head of the Stroke Division and Leader of the AVERT Early Intervention Research Program. She is a Senior Principal Research Fellow and clinician researcher. Working in a large multidisciplinary team of researchers, the focus of Julie’s group is the development and testing of new exercise and rehabilitation interventions that aim to reduce the burden of stroke related disability. Julie is Australia’s leading stroke rehabilitation trialist, recently completing the largest, international trial of early mobility based rehabilitation ever conducted (AVERT), which included over 2000 patients from five countries.

Julie is also Director of the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Stroke Rehabilitation and Recovery that outlines an interdisciplinary program of work from bench (discovery) to bedside (implementation). This program aims to transform how we do stroke recovery research in Australia. Julie is also committed to improving the retention of women in science and she founded the Women in Science Parkville Precinct collective impact initiative.
