Gurdjian-Thomas Visiting Professor Lecture Series - Dr. Marc Ribó

The Department of Neurosurgery is delighted to host Dr. Marc Ribó as our next Gurdjian-Thomas Visiting Professor, continuing our tradition of advancing neurosurgical education in our community. The title of his talk will be Endovascular Treatment of Stroke: Reflections After IMS3.

Dr. Marc Ribó was born in New York in 1974. He graduated from the University of Barcelona in 1998, and did his residency in Neurology at Hospital Universitari Vall d' Hebron in Barcelona, Spain. He received his PhD for research on Endogenous inhibitors of fibrinolysis in tPA-treated stroke patients.

From 2004-05, he completed a vascular neurology fellowship at the University of Texas-Houston, where he acquired experience in intra-arterial rescue procedures and telemedicine for acute stroke care. His research work was focused on the improvement of acute stroke treatment, on the one hand by attempting to improve and increase patient access to reperfusion treatments and on the other by finding therapeutic endovascular alternatives to those patients in whom thrombolysis was ineffective.

Dr. Ribó practices as an interventional neurologist at Vall d’Hebron Stroke Unit in Barcelona. He is currently spending three months at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center as a visiting professor.
