He has led three large consecutive NIH / NINDS funded multicenter clinical studies over the past 15 years (the WASID trial, the NIH Wingspan Stent registry, and the Stenting and Aggressive Medical Management for Preventing Recurrent stroke in Intracranial Stenosis [SAMMPRIS] trial), which have led to new standards of care for the treatment of atherosclerotic intracranial arterial stenosis.
