Research is focused on clinical, radiologic and pathologic correlations of clinical stroke syndromes; doppler studies and cerebral hemodynamics of large-artery disease; arteriovenous malformations (AVMs); studies of the course and outcome of stroke and its various subtypes; cardiac and hematologic risk factors of stroke; and modification of stroke outcome by specific therapies tested in multi-center trials.
