Sherry H-Y Chou, MD, MMSc, FNCS
Associate Professor, Department of Critical Care Medicine
  with secondary appointments in the Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery

Dr. Chou's research focuses on the use of human molecular biomarkers to probe mechanisms and predict outcomes in acute brain injury conditions such as subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and hypoxic ischemic brain injury from cardiac arrest. She is funded with a K23 award, and the goals of this work include: 1) to better define human pathophysiology of SAH-related vasospasm and brain injury using molecular biomarkers, 2) to develop novel diagnostic molecular biomarkers in SAH, and 3) to define novel molecular therapeutic targets for secondary brain injury in SAH. Dr. Chou also participates as co-investigator in multicenter clinical trials in acute brain injuries including ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, SAH, and traumatic brain injury.
