The research group focuses on the human in vivo imaging of stroke pathophysiology in terms
- of hemodynamic compromise
- tissue loss and
- disturbance of functional networks.
Different imaging modalities are applied in a comparative as well as an additive approach in order to improve clinical stroke imaging and therapy. The research group is located at the Charité Campus Mitte (CCM).
The research group within the Center for stroke research Berlin (CSB)
The CSB offers a unique opportunity for stroke research. The coordination of stroke care and research among the different sites of the Charité ensures a large sample size for inclusion in clinical imaging studies. The existing imaging expertise (Neuroradiology, Nuclear Medicine, clinical and preclinical stroke imaging) is implemented in the research group. The cooperation with basic science research groups (Experimental Neurology) improve the clinical study design. The CSB offers an outstanding expertise in stroke imaging to optimize stroke diagnosis and to develop innovative, pathophysiology driven therapeutic approaches.
