Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our group’s research focus is the acute treatment and prevention of cerebrovascular disorders. Our primary interest is the use of diffusion- and perfusion-weighted MRI to expand the treatment window for ischemic stroke. We are also conducting clinical studies of both neuroprotective and thrombolytic strategies for the treatment of acute stroke and investigating new antithrombotic strategies for stroke prevention.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research focuses on understanding disease mechanisms of stroke injury and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) as they relate to the COX-2-prostaglandin pathways. We are identifying prostaglandin receptor pathways that are involved in these disease models, and our objective is to identify which receptors will be translationally relevant in human neurological disease.
