The Stroke Center is committed to improving the quality of life of patients who have suffered a stroke through long-term patient care, ongoing basic research and clinical trials and continuing medical education.

We are part of the Washington University School of Medicine — a world-renowned research institution. We continue to expand the frontiers of stroke neurology through basic and clinical research.

We are active in basic research through multiple faculty members seeking to understand the basics of stroke pathophysiology, genetics and treatment.

We are also involved in multiple ongoing clinical trials that seek to push the boundaries of medical and surgical management of stroke care.
