Clinical Trials

Baptist Health System, in partnership with the University of Texas Health Science Center's Department of Neurosurgery participates in research supported by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) investigating treatments for stroke. NINDS, a branch of the National Institute of Health, conducts stroke research and clinical trials through grants to major medical institutions across the country.


The goal of this research is to reduce neurological disease and develop better ways to help the brain repair itself by restoring function lost to a stroke. Currently, The Brain & Stroke Network is participating in the two multi-center clinical trials listed below and supported by NINDS.
