The Cerebrovascular Research Laboratory studies brain microcirculation in normal and pathological conditions. The brain is critically dependent on a continuous and adequate blood supply for normal functioning, so such catastrophic events like stroke or subarachnoid hemorrhage not only damage the brain, but they lead to abnormalities of cerebrovascular circulation which may aggravate the consequences of the perpetrating event. The ultimate goal of our studies is to develop new therapeutic approaches for the treatment of various neurological disturbances related to cerebrovascular circulation.
