Professor Stephen Davis is the Professor of Translational Neuroscience at the University of Melbourne, Director of the Melbourne Brain Centre at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. He is a Past-President of the World Stroke Organization, co-chairs the Australian Stroke Alliance and the Melbourne Mobile Stroke Unit.


He has received numerous awards including the 2011 William Feinberg Award from the American Stroke Association, the 2012 Karolinska Award and the 2014 JJ Wepfer Award from the European Stroke Council, 2018 Stroke Leadership Award from the WSO and the 2019 Chinese Stroke Association International Cooperation Award. He was an inaugural Fellow in the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences, 2015 and the 2017 C Miller Fisher Visiting Professor at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard. He was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2021.


His research is focussed on acute therapy for both ischemic stroke and intracerebral haemorrhage, particularly the use of advanced imaging in selection of therapy. He is the Principal Investigator of a MRFF grant using tranexamic acid for intracerebral hemorrhage and Co-Lead (with G Donnan) of the 2021 Frontiers MRFF grant on Pre-Hospital Stroke Care. He has published more than 550 peer-reviewed research
