Special Report: The Bugher Network in Hemorrhagic Stroke
Susanne J. van Veluw, PhD of the Department of Neurology, Jonathan Rosand, MD, MSc, co-director of the McCance Center for Brain Health, and colleagues are key investigators in cross-center, cross-disciplinary research projects funded by the new Bugher Network in Hemorrhagic Stroke.
Pilot Trial: Resiliency Intervention Feasible for Survivors of Critical Neurologic Illness, Family Caregivers
Ana-Maria Vranceanu, PhD, and Jonathan Rosand, MD, of the McCance Center for Brain Health, and colleagues showed in a pilot randomized trial that evidence-based resiliency training for patients with brain injury and family caregivers is feasible in the ICU/hospital setting.
Novel Approach Identifies Two More Genetic Loci for Intracerebral Hemorrhage
A novel approach to studying genetic factors in cerebral small vessel disease has revealed two previously unreported loci for intracranial hemorrhage and confirmed two others.
Mass General Neurologists Research Effects of COVID-19 on the Brain
A COVID-19 smell test, a longitudinal study of patients with multiple sclerosis who develop COVID-19 and high-intensity support for the brain health of COVID-19 survivors are among the research projects underway at Massachusetts General Hospital.
The Impact of Trauma on Caregivers of ICU Patients
Seeing a loved one admitted into the ICU can lead to emotional trauma for the patient's loved ones. In this video, Jonathan Rosand, MD, discusses why it is critical to provide care for a patient's loved ones along with the patient.
Research Advances from Mass General Neurology
Researchers from the Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital discuss their collaborative and individual work in clinical and translational research.
Genetic Variation and Risk of Stroke
Jonathan Rosand, MD, co-director, Henry and Allison McCance Center for Brain Health, and co-director, Mass General Neuroscience, discusses his collaborative study of stroke genetics.
Social Relationships May Influence Stroke and Dementia Risk
Two very different risk factors, social isolation and low levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor, are associated with increased risk of stroke and dementia. Mass General researchers investigated whether social relationships reduce stroke and dementia risk through the BDNF pathway.
Jonathan Rosand MD MSc is a critical care and vascular neurologist with expertise in the genetics of complex diseases. An internationally recognized clinician-scientist and educator, he is Chief of the MGH Division of Neurocritical Care and Emergency Neurology, Investigator within the MGH Center for Genomic Medicine and Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Rosand's multidisciplinary research group is part of the MGH Center for Genomic Medicine and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
Dr. Rosand's practice is devoted to preserving and restoring brain health for patients and their families in the Intensive Care Unit, the Emergency Department, and the outpatient setting. He is Co-Director, with Drs. Rudy Tanzi and Gregory Fricchione, of the Henry and Allison McCance Center for Brain Health.
