Guardians of Neuroaxis

Our Mission

Our mission is to investigate the effects of self-fulfilling prophecy bias in neuroprognostication studies. We aim to improve neurocritical care through analysis of outcome prediction in Cardia arrest, stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, traumatic brain injuries and subarachnoid hemorrhage. Our hope is to improve clinical outcomes for neurologic patients.
