Research topics: Our research seeks to advance our understanding of cerebrovascular disease and to develop new minimally invasive treatments for these diseases. 

Techniques: We use state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques to non-invasively study cerebrovascular diseases, and we are developing future endovascular technologies to advance neurointerventional surgery.


Seeking undergrads for: Academic year, Summer

Location: Flexible, with possibilities for remote or on-campus research projects

Required skills: None

This lab is particularly interested in mentoring: Undergrads from backgrounds that are underrepresented in STEM, Aspiring medical and graduate students

How to apply: Contact Dr. Heit (

Project information: We are using a mouse ischemic stroke model to understand better how inflammation and collateral blood flow contribute and protect against brain injury, respectively. We are also using advanced imaging to understand how these processes affect human patients suffering from ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke.
