Dr Jatinder Minhas

Associate Professor of Stroke Medicine / Honorary Consultant Stroke Physician


I hold the position of Associate Professor of Stroke Medicine at the University of Leicester. In addition, I am an Honorary Consultant Stroke Physician at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. As I move towards research independence I lead and collaborate on a number of clinical and physiologically focused stroke studies in addition to a number of research based leadership roles. 


1) NIHR ARC PhD Studentship Matched Funding. Evaluating the feasibility of remote haemodynamic monitoring in a cohort of multi-ethnic chronic stroke patients using a novel user interface and artificial intelligence algorithms. PI.

2) NIHR East Midlands Clinical Research Network. Parkinson’s Disease in minority ethnic groups - understanding phenotypical traits to inform pathways of care in the East Midlands. Co-PI.

3) NIHR-British Association of Stroke Physicians Writing Group Funding. Clinical Frailty and its role in stroke outcomes and recovery. Co-I.

4) Medical Research Council IAX Funding. Evaluating the feasibility of assessing carbon dioxide change in stroke patients. PI.

5) Medical Research Council LD3 Confidence in Concept Grant. Brain TV confidence in concept: severe brain injury. Co-I.

6) NIHR CLAHRC Phase V Funding. Evaluating the implementation of rapid access clinics in cardiovascular disease. Co-PI.

7) Dunhill Medical Trust Clinical Research Training Fellowship. Feasibility of improving cerebral autoregulation in intracerebral haemorrhage. PI.

I study all aspects of acute stroke haemodynamic physiology though have a particular interest in acute intracerebral haemorrhage haemodynamics and cerebrovascular reactivity assessment.

I am interested in MD/PhD supervision in the following topic areas:

Cerebral Haemodynamics; Cerebral Autoregulation; Cerebrovascular Reactivity; Acute Stroke Care; Pre-Hospital Stroke Diagnosis
