BiographyW. 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 cares for patients in the Neuroscience intensive care unit as part of an integrated and multi-disciplinary team model with Neurosurgery and Neuroendovascular specialists. He works on several hospital-based and national committees that focus on clinical guideline development and quality improvement.
Dr. Kimberly's research group is located in the Center for Human Genetic Research, and studies blood-based and neuroimaging biomarkers of subarachnoid hemorrhage, stroke and cerebral edema. Through the use of metabolomics and neuroimaging, the goal is to identify novel therapeutic targets for acute brain injury. Dr. Kimberly also co-leads a phase II multi-site, randomized, placebo-controlled trial that is evaluating the safety and efficacy of a novel compound in preventing brain edema.
