Maria Assunção Tuna is a Senior Clinical Research Fellow at the Centre for Prevention of Stroke and Dementia, Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford and Consultant in Neurology and Stroke in the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust. She was previously a Consultant in Neurology at Centro Hospitalar do Porto, where she led the Hyperacute Stroke Unit. Dr Tuna studied medicine at Instituto de Ciencias Biomedicas Abel Salazar, University of Porto. She was awarded first prize in clinical epidemiology by the Lisbon Society of Medical Science for her master’s thesis on prognosis of transient neurological attacks and was subsequently selected for the Doctoral Programme for Physicians of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. She undertook a doctorate in Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford (‘A Population-Based Study of Transient Neurological Attacks: Incidence, Clinical Characteristics, Investigation, Aetiology and Prognosis’) under the supervision of Professor Peter Rothwell. Dr Tuna’s research in the Oxford Vascular Study focuses on the diagnosis, investigation and prognosis of typical and atypical transient ischaemic attacks and other transient neurological symptoms, to prevent stroke recurrence.

I specialise in motor neurorehabilitation and neuromodulation. Recent clinical trials have focussed on using robotics and brain stimulation in stroke and Parkinson's disease. I follow a translational neuroscience approach to applying well developed mechanistic understanding to designing interventions.
