    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Halabi is board certified in Neurology and in Vascular Neurology and directs the UCSF Neurorecovery Clinic. She treats patients hospitalized with neurovascular emergencies such as ischemic stroke and subarachnoid hemorrhage. Her outpatient practice includes evaluating patients in various stages of neurorecovery from acquired or sudden onset neurologic injuries such as traumatic brain injury or stroke. She also evaluates patients with advanced cardiovascular risk factors, vascular malformations, and genetic and autoimmune diseases with neurovascular sequelae. Her research interests include neural systems-based investigation of neurologic injury for biomarker and treatment target identification.
