Danish Stroke Centre (DSC) was established in 2012 in close connection to the high-volume comprehensive stroke unit at Aarhus University Hospital.

The centre builds on a documented productive network and is characterized by highly specialized and competent staff members; research is an integrated part of daily practice.

Networking also involves adjacent specialties in cardiology, clinical epidemiology and basic science. The translational collaboration with Center of functional Integrative Neuroscience (CFIN), Aarhus University Hospital) has been firmly established since the beginning of 2004, when MRI in acute stroke became a first priority in diagnostics before acute re-perfusion treatment.

The primary goal of the DSC is to strengthen clinical research at local and national level and to establish collaboration to renowned international stroke research groups. The aim is to conduct clinical and epidemiological stroke research at high international level and to implement new treatments and achievements fast and efficiently in every day practice. Moreover, to facilitate the necessary organisational changes in Denmark to treat as many patients as possible as fast as possible in the acute setting. Close collaboration with the pre-hospital organisation is thus a very important priority.
