Research Training

Each vascular neurology Fellow is expected to initiate a research project based on clinical or laboratory experience. Research is usually performed within the department, but can take place in another department. The research interests of the faculty are varied, and many projects are in progress. You may also view the research interests of our faculty by visiting their web profiles. Presentations of research are made annually during the Neurology Resident/Fellow Research Conference at the end of the academic year.
