University of Utah StrokeNet


Utah

The University of Utah Health Sciences Center (UUHC) Stroke Center leads stroke care and research in the Intermountain West. UUHC provides collaborative adult and pediatric stroke care, including: pre-hospital engagement; remote acute evaluation via the 16-site Utah Telestroke Network; inpatient vascular neurology, neurosurgery, interventional care; and stroke-specific inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. The Stroke Center has consistently achieved the highest American Heart Association quality awards offered. In recognition of the full-spectrum and high quality of care, UUHC was designated a Comprehensive Stroke Center by DNV in 2013. We have 10+ year history of participating in multi-center adult and pediatric clinical trials in stroke prevention, treatment, and recovery. In addition, UT StrokeNet translational vascular scientists are currently investigating: animal and translational models of vascular malformations; thrombosis and platelet aggregation; neurovascular coupling and peri-infarct depolarization; stroke genetics and population-based genetic epidemiology; and functional imaging used in development of models of stroke recovery prediction.
