The research will be outlined in an oral presentation Friday, Feb. 3, at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference 2012 in New Orleans. The presenting author is Jason Mackey, MD, (pictured above in 2011), who conducted the research as a neurology fellow at UC and is currently an assistant professor of neurology at the Indiana University School of Medicine.
