Emory Stroke Team Part of NIH Network

Emory University School of Medicine, in close collaboration with the Marcus Stroke & Neuroscience Center, will be part of a network of 25 regional coordinating centers from across the nation supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to revolutionize stroke clinical research by addressing new discoveries in prevention, treatment and recovery.

The NIH Stroke Trials Network, or NIH StrokeNet, has teams of researchers representing every medical specialty needed for stroke care. According to NIH, the new system is intended to streamline stroke research by centralizing approval and review, lessening time and costs of clinical trials, and assembling a comprehensive data sharing system.

Neuroscience faculty members, Dr. David Wright and Dr. Steven Wolf, will serve as senior co-principal investigators on the Georgia StrokeNet. Click here to view the full story in the Emory News Center.
