At the UTHealth Pediatric Stroke Program, our mission is to put our patients first. We see research as a special journey that helps us provide better care and improve life for those we look after. Just like a detective uses clues to solve a mystery, we use research to find new ways to help kids with stroke get better.
UTHealth Stroke Program has been conducting high caliber research in stroke for a long time, and our Pediatric Stroke Program is proudly carrying that tradition forward. We are part of the International Pediatric Stroke Study, where we work with other scientists from all over the world. We are also involved in other research studies funded by the National Institutes of Health, as well as conducting retrospective and prospective studies. These studies focus on how we can better treat stroke when it happens and help children recover afterwards.
Want to help us on this journey? We're always looking for volunteers to join our studies. Check out the information below to learn more about our studies that are currently recruiting participants. Together, we can make life better for kids with stroke.
