Zipfel, Gregory J.

Associate Professor of Neurosurgery and Neurology

Description of Research:

Our laboratory has two main interests: 1) Examining the pathophysiologic effects of amyloid-? peptide on cerebrovascular function, and determining how such effects contribute to diseases including ischemic stroke, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, and Alzheimer’s Disease; and 2) Exploring the molecular basis and developing novel therapeutics for subarachnoid hemorrhage-induced cerebral vasospasm – in particular, exploring the role of KATP channels in this disease.
