Dr. Gurol is a stroke neurologist with particular expertise in the care of patients at high risk for ischemic (blockage type) strokes and hemorrhages. His NIH-funded research focuses on clarifying the mechanisms of brain small vessel diseases that increase the risk of both types of strokes. Dr. Gurol is an international expert in stroke prevention for patients with atrial fibrillation and high hemorrhagic risk.

  • Structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging predictors of hemorrhage recurrence and disease progression in cerebral amyloid angiopathy
  • Molecular mechanisms of brain Injury in patients with age-related cerebral small vessel diseases
  • Understanding embolic and hemorrhagic risk in patients with atrial fibrillation at risk of intracranial hemorrhage and determining the best management aproaches (pharmacological vs nonpharmacological)
