Ms. Tippett is the coordinator in the Stroke Cognitive Outcomes and REcovery (SCORE) lab in the Department of Neurology in which studies focus on mechanisms of recovery of cognitive deficits after acute stroke, and the relationship between impairments in specific cognitive processes and areas of dysfunctional or damaged brain tissue.
NIH/NIDCD P50 DC 014664 (PI; J Fridirksson), "Center for the Study of Aphasia Recover (C-STAR)" 04/01/16 - 03/31/21 The goals of this grant are to establish a new clinical center for chronic storke survivors with aphasia and to improve aphasia treatment effectiveness as well as identify patient factors that can be used to improve diagnosis of language impairment, guide aphasia treatment and predict prognosis.
NIDCD R01 DC011317 (PI R Friedman) (AE Hillis: PI of sub), “Rehabilitation and Prophylaxis of Anomia in Primary Progressive Aphasia” 7/1/11-8/30/22. The goal of this project is to evaluate therapy for naming in improving or preventing deterioration of word-retrieval in primary progressive aphasia.
NIH/NIDCD R01 DC 5375 (PI: AE Hillis), “Neural Basis for Language Deficits in Acute Stroke & Recovery” 7/1/2002 – 6/30/18 The goals of this grant are to identify changes in the language network from the acute stage of stroke through the first year of recovery.
