Dr. Michèle Sale and her collaborators recently published a paper in the June 2017 issue of Stroke. The researchers’ aim was to investigate the potential role of circulating von Willebrand factor (vWF) in recurrent cerebrovascular events and identify genetic contributors to variation in vWF level in an ischemic stroke population. Collaborators in CPHG were Drs. Steve Rich, Wei-Min Chen, and Keith Keene (visiting faculty) and in the UVA School of Medicine, Drs. Stephen Williams and Brad Worrall in the Dept of Neurology.
