Faculty Awards and Recognitions Dr. Gonzalez and Dr. Viñuela received 2008 Stein Oppenheimer Endowment Award 03/01/2008
Drs. Nestor Gonzalez and Fernando Viñuela from the Interventional Neuroradiology Division have been selected to receive the 2008 Stein Oppenheimer Endowment Award, a private grant from "Ijane inc." The awarded proposal of endovascular stroke model will allow for a more accurate simulation of human stroke conditions, utilizing minimally invasive techniques. Scientists and clinicians will benefit from a new model that can be used for molecular studies and new therapy testing. This model will produce a stroke with specifically controlled ischemia time and lesion volume, which will be suitable for imaging and intervention studies and provide sufficient cortex for multiple molecular experiments. Such model may become a fundamental tool for the development of new therapeutic interventions for cerebrovascular disease.
