Chicago Stroke Trials Consortium

 

Chicago Stroke Trials Consortium | 710 N. Lake Shore Drive, Suite 1417 | Chicago, IL 60611 | http://www.neurology.northwestern.edu/research/clinical-trials.html
 

The Chicago Stroke Trials Consortium (CSTC) led by the RCC at The University of Chicago is a collaborative network of 7 centers in the Chicago metropolitan area: Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Lurie Children’s Hospital, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Rush University Medical Center, Loyola University Chicago, and the Hektoen Institute for Medical Research/John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. The RCC aims to combine resources, diverse faculty with stroke expertise, and access to a multi-ethnic population of stroke patients from a combined geographic referral base encompassing almost 10 million people. The amassed investigators have backgrounds in all aspects of stroke research and leadership roles. The CSTC aims to provide cutting-edge stroke treatments to a diverse patient population, provide consolidated multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional expertise and leadership for Network trials, and ensure mentoring for the next generation of stroke investigators.
