Marion Buckwalter, MD, PhD

Stanford School of Medicine

Marion Buckwalter, MD, PhD is a Professor in Neurology and Neurological Sciences, and Neurosurgery at Stanford School of Medicine and a Deputy Director of the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute. She is a neurointensivist and basic scientist whose research focuses on how inflammation triggered by ischemic stroke affects long term outcomes and brain health. In particular, she discovered that brain ischemia triggers a long-lasting adaptive immune response in mice and people, and that it causes post-stroke cognitive decline in mice. Her current work focuses on developing deep understanding of these mechanisms and utilizing forward and reverse translation to ultimately develop therapies.
