The Work We Do
Cerebrovascular disease encompasses much more than strokes.
While diseases of the brain’s blood vessels are most often recognized when a person has a stroke, they also cause progressive decline in cognition, memory and gait as we age, as well as late-life depression. Preventing cerebrovascular disease therefore holds the hope of transforming the aging process and preserving our brain function as we age.
At the core of our work is a partnership with patients. Patients graciously contribute their time, share their medical histories, answer questionnaires, undergo neuroimaging, and donate blood and tissue samples.
