Research Projects

The dedicated group of researchers brings exceptional multidisciplinary expertise to research. Their studies’ findings will lead to better patient outcomes through improved diagnosis, individualized treatment, and recovery for patients who have suffered from stroke and other cerebrovascular conditions.

The Zeiler Stroke Recovery Lab

At  the Zeiler Stroke Recovery Laboratory, Dr. Steven Zeiler and his research team are broadening the understanding of how — and to what extent — motor recovery is possible after stroke. 

  • Marsh Lab

    The Marsh Lab studies stroke treatment, recovery and risk identification. The Marsh Lab created the Hemorrhage Risk Stratification (HeRS) score to predict hemorrhagic transformation in patients treated with anticoagulants. Currently, the Marsh Lab is using magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investigate how strokes impact higher level cognitive processes. Additional research in the lab focuses on treatment options for reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS).

  • S.C.O.R.E. Lab

    The mission of the Stroke Cognitive Outcomes and Recovery (S.C.O.R.E.) Lab is to enhance knowledge of brain mechanisms that allow people recover language, empathy, and other cognitive and communicative functions after stroke, and to improve ways to facilitate recovery of these functions after stroke. We also seek to improve the understanding of neurobiology of primary progressive aphasia., and how to enhance communication in people with this group of clinical syndromes.
