Welcome to the J.B. Marshall Laboratory for Neurovascular Therapeutics
Thank you for vising the website of the J.B. Marshall Laboratory for Neurovascular Therapeutics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. We are interested in translating basic science research into the development of novel endovascular therapeutics for stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, CNS tumors, and functional CNS disease.
Recent developments in endovascular surgery allow for an unprecedented level of access to the brain in the acute setting. In the operating room, members of the Singer Lab navigate catheters into the neurovasculature and deliver therapies directly to the site of disease. Singer Lab clinical research aims to optimize existing treatments and uncover biomarkers of disease. Preclinical research in the Singer Lab focuses on vetting new pharmaceuticals to be used in human patients. This site is currently under construction so we hope you will check back often for updates. We welcome feedback which can be emailed here.
