Dr. Marshall co-directs the Richard & Jenny Levine Cerebral Localization Laboratory with Dr. Ronald M. Lazar, Ph.D, and conducts an active clinical research program on cerebral hemodynamics and brain function including the investigation of brain reorganization after stroke using function MRI. He has been continuously funded by NIH grants for his research since his appointment at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1994. Current NIH grants include a program project—the Columbia Collaborative Specialized Program of Translational Research in Acute Stroke (SPOTRIAS—and an RO1 grant to study the correlation between cerebrovascular hemodynamics and cognitive function in patients with carotid artery stenosis. He also participates in several clinical trials for acute stroke therapy, stroke prevention and stroke recovery.
