Research Interest

Research Interest

Dr. Kidwell is Professor of Neurology and Medical Imaging and Vice Chair of Research in the Department of Neurology. Dr. Kidwell's clinical research focuses on 1) innovative neuroimaging approaches directed at understanding stroke pathophysiology and treatment, 2) reducing health disparities in stroke care, and 3) advancing novel treatments for acute stroke including intracerebral hemorrhage. Dr. Kidwell is the author of over 100 peer-reviewed journal publications and 15 book chapters.

Background Limited data are available to guide the choice of a target for the systolic blood-pressure level when treating acute hypertensive response in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage. Methods We randomly assigned eligible participants with intracerebral hemorrhage (volume,

Methodology for a community-based stroke preparedness intervention: the Acute Stroke Program of Interventions Addressing Racial and Ethnic Disparities Study. Stroke, 45(7), 2047-52.

Acute stroke education has focused on stroke symptom recognition. Lack of education about stroke preparedness and appropriate actions may prevent people from seeking immediate care. Few interventions have rigorously evaluated preparedness strategies in multiethnic community settings.
