Scientific Questions Being Studied

Stroke is the second leading cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in the world, but relatively little is known about the underlying mechanisms that lead to stroke. No mechanism-based treatment or established prevention for hemorrhagic stroke is available, other than management of vascular risk factors. Up to 50% of cases of ischemic stroke remain without a specific etiology and thus unexplained. There are great disparities between different communities in stroke incidence and outcome after stroke. We aim to better understand health disparities and risk factors in traditionally underserved communities and to improve them in order to reduce overall burden of disease.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (Stroke (ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, cerebrovascular disease))
  • Population Health
  • Social / Behavioral
  • Ancestry

Scientific Approaches

We will assess prevalence of traditional as well as new cardiovascular risk factors, and environment exposures in a diverse dataset.

Anticipated Findings

The results of our studies will help to decrease the incidence of stroke by developing targeted risk factor prevention strategies.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
