Buckwalter Lab Team
Associate Professor of Neurology and Neurological Sciences, and Neurosurgery
Dr. Buckwalter is a stroke clinician and basic scientist, and her laboratory focuses on how inflammation after stroke affects outcomes. They utilize complementary mouse models of stroke, and use transgenic, viral, and pharmacological techniques to alter inflammatory gene expression and assess the effect on outcome.
Her lab also utilizes human samples from ongoing clinical studies at the Stanford Stroke Center. Dr Buckwalter co-leads SCAN, the Stroke Collaborative Action Network, a group of Stanford researchers sponsored by the Stanford Neuroscience Institute's Big Ideas initiative to study stroke recovery.
