Professor Geoffrey Cloud

Professor Cloud trained in medicine in London and worked as an NHS consultant stroke physician at St George’s hospital, London from 2004-2016. He relocated to Melbourne, Australia in 2016, to develop and lead the comprehensive stroke service within the Alfred hospital clinical neuroscience program and also heads the stroke division of the Department of Clinical Neuroscience in the Central Clinical School of Monash University. Professor Cloud divides his time between clinical duties, managing the hospital department of stroke medicine, supervising a large portfolio of clinical trials in stroke, teaching and supervising students. He is currently chair of the Australian Stroke Care Registry Quality Improvement Committee and the AusDat (Australian Stroke Data) Committee. Professor Cloud’s research interest lies in stroke medicine and encompasses many aspects of stroke care, including participating in large multi-centre, clinical RCTs and using clinical quality care registries to improve outcomes. His current focus is on exploring a novel stroke prevention approach to the increasingly recognised condition of cerebral amyloid angiopathy.
