Department of Neurology

neurology Research

Over the past several years, members of the Department of Neurology at the University of Toledo have conducted a number of funded research projects in the areas of epilepsy, stroke, multiple sclerosis and movement disorders. Projects have included the role of inflammatory cytokines and adhesion molecules in stroke and in migraine, novel therapeutic options in Parkinson Disease, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and Epilepsy.

The Research and Grants Administration has a multitude of resources available on line to assist in the preparation and submission of research proposals, as well as links to the major granting agencies. 

clinical research

The University of Toledo Department of Neurology faculty have >300 scholarly peer-reviewed publications to answer specific clinical questions and/or disseminate clinical knowledge. Faculty members have also co-authored book chapters and serve as reviewers in high impact journals.

Current active clinical trials (and contact information) may be found at: https://www.utoledo.edu/med/research/jcctr/studies/Neurology.html

A number of these research projects involve collaboration between department members and colleagues in other UT clinical and basic science departments. Recent areas of interest for faculty members include neurological complications of Covid-19 infections, safety, and quality of care in the neurocritical care unit, epilepsy of late onset, tolerability of antiseizure medications, neurointervention in cerebrovascular disease, immunological treatment of multiple sclerosis and novel compounds for treatment of Huntington and Parkinson Disease.

educational research

A number of clinical faculty have an interest and expertise in educational research. In addition, to peer reviewed publications, a number of collaborative projects are ongoing locally with the Department of Medical Education as well with other institutions and organizations such as AAN.
