Dr. Will Meurer’s focus is on the treatment of acute neurological emergencies, both as a researcher and clinician. He has been part of the University of Michigan Acute Stroke Team since 2006. In addition, he has experience enrolling patients in acute trials and has served as a local PI for the CLEAR-ER trial (a trial enrolling acute stroke patients in the ED that tested a reperfusion strategy). He is on the executive team of the Strategies to Innovate EmeRgENcy Care Clinical Trials Network (SIREN). He has other active or recently completed NIH funded clinical trials involving acute vertigo in the emergency department, hypertension, and therapeutic hypothermia after cardiac arrest.
Areas of Interest
My research interests are directed towards improvement of the acute care delivered for stroke patients in the emergency department. This involves studying systems of care and barriers to delivering high quality effective treatment to this population of patients. I also participate in trials investigating new medications for use in acute ischemic stroke.
