NIH StrokeNet

What is StrokeNet?

In September of 2013, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded the stroke trials network, NIH StrokeNet. StrokeNet is an infrastructure of 25 Regional Coordinating Centers across the U.S., a National Coordinating Center at the University of Cincinnati, and a National Data Management Center (Medical University of South Carolina).

The primary goal of this network is to maximize efficiencies to develop, promote and conduct high-quality, large and small, multi-site clinical trials and research studies focused on key interventions in stroke prevention, treatment and recovery.

This network which involves more than 200 hospitals is designed to serve as the infrastructure and pipeline for new potential treatments for patients with stroke and those at risk for stroke, as well as an educational platform for stroke physicians and clinical trial coordinators.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is one of 25 Regional Coordinating Center that works with various hospitals throughout Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
