As a member of StrokeNet, an NIH-created network of 27 regional centers across the U.S., this National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) funded fellowship aims to support early-career development of clinical trial expertise in ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. It was designed to serve as the infrastructure and pipeline for new potential treatments for patients with stroke and those at risk for stroke.
