Stroke and Neurovascular Institute

Basic & Translational Research:


The Stroke and Neurovascular Center has basic stroke science stroke models and biomaterials capability in the state of the art animal laboratory with microsurgical capabilities. It also has a state of the art biomaterials basic research laboratory. Translational projects are performed under the auspices of a close SNC team collaboration with the basic science teams.

MicroRNA study

Expression of the microRNA’s is being studied to understand the events during acute ischemic stroke. This study is being conducted at Dr. Stephen Kelly’s laboratory.

Acute Inflammatory Study

Clot retrieved in patients with acute ischemic stroke during neurointerventional surgery are studied for cytokine expression and acute soluble factors release in this study at Dr. Michelle Previtera’s laboratory.
