Our team at the JPK Stroke Research Center hosts WHISR—White Matter Hyperintensity Imaging Stroke Research—a speaker series in which a collaborator presents his or her research to the JPK/Neurology community at MGH. These monthly presentations bring together our research center along with other members of the MGH/MIT community in a collaborative, focused environment to discuss the innovative and progressive research currently taking place.
