Dr. Silbergleit has expertise in organizing and conducting clinical trials in the acute care setting. He has substantial past experience as a translational researcher, working on laboratory animal models of brain injury, and participating in clinical trials in stroke as a site PI and sub-investigator. For the past seven years, he has been a leading co-investigator in the formation and organization of the Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials network, where he contributed to the oversight and management of all NETT trials.
