Buckwalter Lab Team
Marion Buckwalter, MD, PhD
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 inflammation so they can understand its effects on outcome. She also co-directs the Stanford Stroke Recovery Program, and runs a prospective cohort study called StrokeCog that is studying how inflammation predicts and affects cognitive outcomes in stroke survivors.
