W. Taylor Kimberly, MD PhD is a stroke and critical care neurologist in the Department of Neurology. He serves as the Associate Director of the MGH Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit and is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School.

Clinically, he primarily cares for patients in the Neuroscience ICU as part of an integrated and multi-disciplinary team, coordinating care with Neurosurgery and Neuroendovascular specialists. He sees Neuro ICU patients in follow-up in outpatient clinic as part of the Neurorecovery clinical team. He serves on several hospital-based and national committees that focus on clinical guideline development and care improvement.

Dr. Kimberly's research group is located in the Center for Human Genetic Research, and studies metabolomic and neuroimaging biomarkers of subarachnoid hemorrhage, stroke and cerebral edema. The goal of his research is to identify novel pathways and candidate therapeutic targets for the treatment of acute brain injury. Dr. Kimberly has co-led multi-site, randomized, placebo-controlled trials in the prevention of brain edema, and currently co-leads an international phase III trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of RP-1127 in preventing brain edema after large hemispheric stroke.
