Genetic underpinnings of recovery after stroke: an opportunity for gene discovery, risk stratification, and precision medicine

Genome Med. 2019 Sep 13;11(1):58. doi: 10.1186/s13073-019-0671-5.


As the number of stroke survivors continues to increase, identification of therapeutic targets for stroke recovery has become a priority in stroke genomics research. The introduction of high-throughput genotyping technologies and novel analytical tools has significantly advanced our understanding of the genetic underpinnings of stroke recovery.
