Dr. Larry B. Goldstein is the Ruth L. Works Professor, the Chairman of the Department of Neurology and Co-Director of the Kentucky Neuroscience Institute. He received his medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine. He completed his neurology residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center and a research fellowship in cerebrovascular disease at Duke University. An internationally known expert, Goldstein focuses on stroke-related clinical care, research and education. He has received numerous teaching and other professional awards and served in leadership positions in regional and national organizations focused on neurology, stroke and related disorders.
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.
