Welcome to the Stroke Resource Lab

As part of the Center for Neurotherapeutics Discovery (CND), the Stroke Resource Lab provides a pre-clinical discovery opportunity/platform for training on in vivo stroke murine models with aim to progress and accelerate research collaborations, support understanding of human CNS disorders and develop therapeutic interventions. The Stroke Resource Laboratory is available to UR investigators and offers training services, advanced skills and technical expertise upon request. The lab operates out of surgical and behavioral suites designed specifically for small animal research and is located in the first floor of Kornberg Medical Research Building, within the CND.
