Innovations in Stroke Care and Rehabilitation
From the moment a stroke occurs, neuroplasticity is heightened, readying the brain for repair. However, says new faculty member Preeti Raghavan, traditional stroke care often doesn’t capitalize on this critical period. The care delivered at the new Sheikh Khalifa Stroke Institute is markedly different from that conventionally delivered to stroke patients, explains Johns Hopkins physiatrist April Pruski. The information exchange between neurologists and physiatrists, through rounding together and daily meetings, can change the course of care.

Firas Mawase Receives the Alfred Blalock Research Award
Post-doctoral fellow Firas Mawase was honored as part of the 2018 Young Investigators Day. Firas and his team at the Human Brain Physiology and Stimulation Lab have developed a novel motor skill training protocol and showed that individualized and intense motor skill training improves finger dexterity and basic hand functions, and reduces abnormal finger flexion synergy in people with chronic stroke.
"I found that Johns Hopkins is unique because it is home to experts in clinical practice and research, and it integrates clinical practice and research, making it an ideal location to tackle challenging clinical problems with cutting-edge approaches," says Firas.
