Dariush Dowlatshahi

University of Ottawa, Canada

Dar Dowlatshahi serves as an Assistant Professor at the Division of Neurology, Department of Medicine, University of Ottawa; Associate Scientist of neuroscience at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute; Stroke Neurologist at the same hospital. His research interests include (i) intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), as he is interested in how hematoma behaviour in the acute period relates to clinical symptoms and recovery, and how volume, location, and morphology can influence early hematoma expansion, ventricular rupture, and outcome; (ii) imaging-based stratification for acute stroke therapy, as he believes that multimodal neuroimaging can direct acute therapy in ischemic stroke and ICH—findings on CTA and CTP can guide therapeutic decision-making and expand our treatment windows; (iii) acute stroke therapy. Rapid management of stroke is critical to mitigate injury and optimize recovery potentials, he is interested in the presenting clinical and radiological features that influence acute therapy, and processes that reduce treatment times. From 2009–2010, he was awarded a stroke fellowship from the University of Ottawa; 2008–2010, an RCPSC Clinician Investigator Program at the University of Ottawa; 2008–2009, a stroke fellowship from the University of Calgary; 2003–2009, a neurology residency at the University of Ottawa; 2000–2003, an M.D. degree from McMaster University; 1997–2003, Ph.D. degree in neurosciences from McMaster University; 1993–1997, a B.S. degree (honors) in biology and psychology from McMaster University. Among the selected awards and distinctions are 2008 CIHR Fellowship Award, 2008 University of Ottawa Fellowship for New Faculty Award, 2001 Richard and Mary Pelling Scholarship, and 1999 NSERC Scholarship.
