    Personal Statement

    My focus for the last 30 years has been on stroke, stroke prevention, stroke treatment and post-stroke recovery. One of the things that we're doing here at UK is, as the Kentucky Neuroscience Institute evolves, we're bringing together our clinicians, our clinical investigators and our basic translational researchers to advance stroke care.
