Academic clinical research addresses major public health issues to establish new standards of care but also to facilitate the validation of new agents in existing therapeutic strategies.

The scientific and medical advances achieved by academic research have greatly contributed to healthcare improvement and management of patients, particularly in the field of stroke relying on multidisciplinary approaches.The costs of clinical research and training are becoming a troublesome issue for academic medical centers.
