In this presentation, I will discuss 1) the genesis, evolution of inflammation within the brain after onset of ischemic stroke and intracerebral hemorrhage; 2) the current evidence on how brain inflammation affect the short term and long term outcome of stroke patients; 3) modulation of brain inflammation as a potential single or adjunct therapy for stroke patients; 4) stroke-induced immune alteration, mechanisms and clinical implication; 5) outstanding scientific and clinical questions in research area of brain inflammation after stroke.
