Most strokes are ischemic, meaning a blood vessel to the brain is blocked by a blood clot. Stroke is also the leading cause of serious, long-term disability, and the fifth leading cause of death in the United States.

Ford studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of stroke and acute brain injuries.  Stout specializes in ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, arteriovenous malformations, arteriovenous malformations, aneurysms of the brain and spine, and vascular malignancies of the central nervous system.

The next lecture in the series at UCR Palm Desert will take place April 5, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  The topic is “Living longer with HIV.”
