Dr. Gregory J. Del Zoppo, M.D., PhD.

Dr. Del Zoppo is Professor of Medicine (in hematology) and Adjunct Professor of Neurology at the University of Washington. He was formerly Associate Professor at the Department of Molecular and Experimental Medicine, The Scripps Research Institute, and Member in the Division of Hematology/Oncology at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, California. He has had a long standing interest in the work of the Nejat International Childhood Cancer Research Society.

Dr. del Zoppo serves on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Stroke Network, a federally-supported research funding organization in Canada, since its inception in 2000. He is active in the review process for the funding of projects by the NIH and other organizations that support research and clinically relevant projects. His basic research interests include the structure and responses of the neurovascular unit to focal ischemia, mechanisms of cerebral microvascular integrity, the pathology of focal cerebral ischemia, and the mechanisms of the development of intracranial hemorrhage. He has had a long-standing interest in the treatment of acute thrombotic disorders and in approaches that bring new treatment options to adults and children with disorders of hemostasis, combining fundamental and clinical research investigations with clinical practice. For his work he received the NINDS Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award in 2004. In addition, his research group has contributed to the understanding of how the brain alters hemostasis during injury. Those observations have served as underpinnings for our current standard treatments for stroke.

Dr. del Zoppo is a fellow of the Stroke Council of the American Heart Association, and a member of many national and international societies focused on vascular biology, hemostasis, and the central nervous system. He currently serves as principal investigator and on the data and safety monitoring committees of a number of ongoing clinical trials.

Dr. del Zoppo has authored or co-authored more than 200 publications primarily on cerebro- and cardiovascular diseases in journals such as Stroke, Annals of Neurology, Cerebrovascular Diseases, Neurology, the New England Journal of Medicine, Circulation, the Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism, and others.
