Description of CVI Expertise

CVI Program Unit(s):
Lipid / Atherosclerosis / CAD / ACS / Prevention

CVI Research Description:
I am a stroke neurologist who also performs intraoperative monitoring. Thus, my research interests cover neuroprotection broadly, ranging from patient selection for tPA use in acute stroke to neuroprotectant interventions for cardiothoracic surgery.
