About Dr. Fagan’s Research
The next five years will be focused on determining the mechanisms of accomplishing vascular protection after acute ischemic stroke and the impact of vascular protection on functional outcome. The specific goals are: to determine the contribution of acute blood pressure lowering to recovery after ischemic stroke; to determine the impact of vascular protection on neuronal survival; to determine the contribution of premorbid vascular health to recovery after ischemia and reperfusion.
