Personal profile


A/Prof Anne Abbott is a neurologist from the Central Clinical School at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. She has been at the forefront of medical research regarding how to best prevent stroke, particularly associated with carotid arterial disease.

Her work is having a significant impact in updating international stroke guidelines, policy and practice for improved patient outcomes. She started a group of international experts, called FACTCATS to assist her (see FACTCATS.org).

A/Prof Anne Abbott’s next objective is to publish the world's first 'evidence-true' guideline on carotid arterial disease management and create ‘Brainy Medicine’, a way to integrate medical research with routine patient care.
