Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator
Email: Srikant.rangaraju@emory.edu

I am a board-certified Neurologist and early-career physician scientist with expertise in Vascular Neurology and have been a faculty member at Emory University since 2014. After a post-doc fellowship at Dr. George Chandy’s lab in UC Irvine, I came to Emory for Neurology residency, followed by fellowship training at University of Pittsburgh. Through my research, I hope to help us to better understand immune mechanisms in neurological diseases and my ultimate goal is to identify novel therapeutic strategies for neurodegenerative diseases and stroke, with potential for rapid translation to patients.
