Roberts Laboratory 

We are a translational research laboratory that focuses on diseases encompassing vascular pathology, such as stroke, moyamoya syndrome, and vascular dementia. Utilizing both animal models of disease and human research participants, our goal is to develop novel interventions to improve health. Collaboration of both clinicians and basic scientists is a vital part of our research program and affords a multi-faceted approach to our research projects.
