WELCOME TO THE MITHA LAB

ABOUT

Neurosurgical complications and problems arise every day and can cause life-threatening problems for patients. Our team looks at finding solutions to common neurosurgical problems with new and innovative ways. Having the opportunity to work closely with both clinicians and basic scientists, this translational lab is multidisciplinary and unique in its function.

OUR RESEARCH

STEM CELL RESEARCH

We are currently learning how to optimize stem cells for treating brain aneurysms.

EMOTIONAL EFFECTS OF IAS

Aneurysms have detrimental emotional effects. Learning more about this will help future patient care.

VEGF COATED STENTS

Learning to better improve the function of stents could drastically change patient care. 

CHEMOTHERAPY

Delivery of chemotherapy drugs with stents will reduce the time patients need to be treated.

BIOABSORBABLE STENTS

Dissolving stents could allow for treatment without permanent long term platelet treatments.

PATIENT PLATELET RESPONSE

Understanding how patients respond to anti-platelet drugs will allow for more personalized care.
