To understand the mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology of ischemic stroke and translate our findings into potential stroke therapy.
A fellow of the American Academy of Neurology, Dr. Lyden has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, the American Heart Association, and the Veteran's Administration for over 30 years. Dr. Lyden has published more than 200 journal articles and abstracts, edited a textbook on stroke intervention, and made many presentations at national and international conferences.
He helped lead a pivotal trial of the only proven treatment for stroke - the clot-busting drug tissue plasminogen activator, or tPA - and shared a prestigious "CINE" award with the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke for producing and directing a training video that is now used around the world. Dubbed into Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, and Chinese, among other languages, the video has been viewed by more than 500,000 stroke nurses and physicians in North America alone.
A peer reviewer for more than 15 professional journals, he is on the editorial boards of Stroke, and the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease and is the Associate Editor of the International Journal of Stroke.
Current investigations include:
Thrombin and protease activated receptors, Stroke Research, Stem cell therapy in stroke. Hypothermia.
