UCLA neurologist honored with American Heart Association's Stroke Council Award

Dr. Jeffrey L. Saver, professor of neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and director of the UCLA Stroke Center, received the American Heart Association (AHA) Stroke Council Award Nov. 13 at the AHA Scientific Sessions Conference in Chicago.

The Stroke Council Award recognizes and encourages those who actively work to integrate stroke and heart disease in clinical care, education or research. Individuals committed to promoting wider recognition of stroke in the cardiovascular community and of heart disease in the stroke community are recognized for their unique efforts.

Saver's research focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of stroke; neuroimaging; clinical trial design, and neurocognitive consequences of stroke.

His work has been supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health and National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the American Heart Association, and the National Stroke Association. He is the author or co-author of more than 175 research articles.

Among his many achievements, Saver is a fellow of the Stroke Council of the American Heart Association, current chair of the AHA Stroke Council's Stroke Scientific Statement Oversight Committee, a fellow of the American Academy of Neurology, a member of the American Neurological Association and a professional member of the National Stroke Association.

Saver received his medical degree from Harvard Medical School in 1981. He is a graduate of the Harvard-Longwood Neurology Training Program, the University of Iowa Fellowship Program in Behavioral Neurology and Cognitive Neuroscience and the Brown University Fellowship Program in Vascular Neurology.
