Research + Clinical Trials

The Department of Neurology at Tufts Medical Center in Boston is dedicated to pursuing new knowledge aimed at better treatments for patients with neurological disease. We are active in basic science and clinical research. Active basic research efforts include exploring the regulation of blood-brain barrier, neurovascular coupling and adult neurogenesis in the hypertensive brain. We are also investigating brain changes in aging and age-related disorders.

The Department of Neurology is also involved in numerous clinical trials involving new diagnostic tests, and pharmacologic and other treatments for stroke, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, neurocritical care and neuromuscular disorders. Internationally recognized contributions from the department include research on stroke in the young, cryptogenic (“unknown source”) stroke, and patent foramen ovale (PFO).
