Clinical Trials and Research Studies


stokeresearchBeth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is a member of the Boston Neurological Emergency Network and the New England NINDS (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke) Stroke Trials Network. We lead NIH (National Institutes of Health) research studies, called clinical trials, that are designed to find better treatments for stroke based on the most updated information from around the world.

Our stroke experts direct translational research (transforming scientific discoveries into clinical applications) and clinical trials (studies that involve people) to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to improve stroke care and recovery. The National Institute of Neurological Disease and Stroke, the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute of Deafness and other Communication Disorders, and other industry sponsors fund these studies.
