The Institute for Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease at UT Health was formed to sustain and grow existing research and training opportunities in stroke and cerebrovascular disease across the various schools at UT Health.  Stroke is a major global health problem and we are uniquely positioned at UTHealth to take advantage of the wonderful expertise at the McGovern Medical School, School of Public Health, School of Nursing, and School of Biomedical Informatics to build upon our existing accomplishments and broaden our research footprint into such areas as stroke prevention, stroke recovery, population health, and health services research.
