With a population of 1.4 million, Auckland has a bustling centre with activities galore, from international concerts and sporting events to cultural festivals and celebrations. Add that to great cafes and bars, an exciting nightlife, terrific shopping, colourful Polynesian and Asian culture influences and a multitude of unique urban villages to live, work and play in, it’s clear why Auckland is ranked fourth out of 215 world cities for quality of living*. *Mercer Quality of Living Survey 2010

The aim of Amelia’s research is to investigate a treatment strategy for ischemic stroke that utilises the brain’s potential for self-repair.
