Neuroscience Research and Clinical Trials
Advanced diagnostic tools using the latest technology and breakthrough treatment options are available to patients at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin based on the research and clinical trials being done.
We are one of the top ten academic medical centers designated as a major hub in a national network for emergency stroke, seizure, spinal cord and brain injury research.

Leading the Way
A sudden stroke, a devastating spinal
cord injury, or the progressive debilitation
that comes with Parkinson’s disease
are among the many neurological
system conditions treated at Froedtert
& The Medical College Neurosciences
- We are among a handful of
medical centers nationwide conducting
groundbreaking clinical trials aimed at
helping people paralyzed by spinal cord
- In 2012, we were the first in Wisconsin to offer the newest
devices to mechanically remove blood clots from the brain.
- We also
launched a telestroke program, connecting board-certified stroke specialists
from our academic medical center with emergency departments at
Community Memorial and St. Joseph’s hospitals, improving the likelihood
that stroke patients will quickly get the care they need.
Leaders in Functional Neuro-Imaging Studies
The Medical College of Wisconsin was one of three medical centers to develop fMRI in 1992. Since then, Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin have become an international leader in functional neuro-imaging, as reflected in more than $44 million dollars in federal and foundation grants.
Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin neuropsychologists are research leaders in functional neuro-imaging studies of memory, language, movement, and attention in clinical populations including head trauma, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Studies conducted at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin have found that fMRI and Wada testing can predict cognitive outcome after epilepsy surgery. For more information on fMRI, go to the Medical College of Wisconsin Functional Imaging Research Center (FIRC) site.
