Srikant Rangaraju, MBBS

Associate Professor
Department of Neurology


Dr Rangaraju is a board-certified neurologist and physician-scientist with specialty training in vascular neurology. He is an active researcher in the fields of predicting patient outcomes after ischemic stroke and inflammation within the brain after stroke and in neurodegenerative diseases. His research laboratory studies ion channels expressed by immune cells in the brain (microglia) and their roles in regulating inflammatory responses in neurologic disorders. His group is developing novel treatment strategies that block specific potassium channels to inhibit the detrimental effects of microglia in neurologic diseases. In addition, his clinical research interests lie in prediction of long-term outcomes in ischemic stroke patients and biomarker discovery in stroke. Dr Rangaraju sees patients in the stroke clinic at Emory University, and also practices inpatient neurology at Emory University Hospital and Grady Memorial Hospital.
