The faculty in the Division of Neurocritical Care are engaged in a variety of research projects that focus on acute brain injury and recovery. With research studies across the continuum of care, our faculty are at the forefront of discoveries in acute neurologic diseases such as seizure, stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage and traumatic brain injury.
Examples of the types of research include clinical trials, discovery of new prognostic tools, advanced neuroimaging, genetics, electrophysiology and fundamental mechanisms of brain injury. Our unique and comprehensive portfolio of research is focused on questions that are directly relevant to the patients we treat in the NeuroICU, leading to state-of-the-art and impactful advances in the care of tomorrow’s patients.
The major areas of focus in acute brain injury include:
