“Stroke Busters” is a podcast series of conversations about stroke and cerebrovascular disease with a focus on evolutionary research and care. Throughout the five-episode series, we connect with our UTHealth network of physicians and researchers in open dialogue about each episode’s topic to educate and bring awareness to stroke research and care. Our goal is to provide valuable dialogue to inspire and encourage stroke trainees, doctors and researchers.
Our first episode “Stroke: Then and Now” is an interview on the past, present and future of stroke research and care with Alexandra Czap, MD, assistant professor of neurology and neurosurgery at the McGovern Medical School, and special guest James C. Grotta, MD, director of stroke research at Memorial Hermann Clinical Institute for Research and Innovation and director of the Mobile Stroke Unit Consortium.
The Institute for Stroke and Cerebrovascular serves as a multi-disciplinary hub for research and best practices in stroke recovery, stroke prevention, services, population health, and vascular dementia. We are one of the most active research and clinical programs in the country, the first Joint Commission-designated Comprehensive Stroke Center in the state, and launched the first Mobile Stroke Unit in the nation.
Our stroke program specializes in stroke epidemiology, clinical trial design, and basic science. We train the next generation of revolutionary academics and leaders in cerebrovascular disease through our NINDS-funded fellowship program.
