Research in Vascular Neurology

Faculty are involved in clinical research trials, ranging from investigator-initiated studies and phase I and II clinical trials to phase III multi-center efficacy studies. Fellows actively build their resume by participating as sub-investigators in these various studies and are allocated up to 2 months for dedicated research if they choose.

Faculty, fellows and residents also participate in retrospective or observation stroke studies on a regular basis with several submissions to regional and national conferences every year. Fellows are encouraged to join existing projects or start new ones of their own design with many faculty and residents eager to assist.

Biostatistician support is readily available for your projects as well as a fully staffed on-site medical library with librarian support for literature searches, manuscript formatting and referencing. Additionally, fellows are provided a tailored and categorized portfolio of 1200+ relevant and landmark stroke articles on USB drive created by the program director for study and research purposes.
