Elisabeth Marsh, MD, FAHA, FANA, FAAN

Johns Hopkins School of Medicine

Dr. Marsh is a board certified vascular neurologist whose research interests include post-stroke recovery and post-stroke cognitive impairment. She received her Bachelors of Arts in Neuroscience from the Johns Hopkins University where she continued her training for medical school, neurology residency, and cerebrovascular fellowship. She is currently an Associate Professor of Neurology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine within the Cerebrovascular Division. She has greater than 50 peer reviewed publications in journals such as Stroke, Annals of Neurology, and the European Journal of Neurology, along with 4 book chapters, and 2 invited editorials. In 2014, Dr. Marsh was named the Medical Director of the Stroke Program at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. She implemented the Bayview Stroke Intervention Clinic (BaSIC), a multi-disciplinary follow-up clinic designed to promote patient follow-up, reduce hospital readmission rates, and enhance post-stroke recovery. Her current focus is on the under-reported neurologic deficits (particularly with respect to depression, fatigue, and cognition) that significantly impair long-term functional outcome and patient satisfaction, despite scores on metrics such as the NIH stroke scale that indicate a “good recovery”. Her research, using magnetoencephalography (MEG) to determine the underlying pathophysiology of cognitive deficits following minor stroke, is supported by the American Heart Association and the National Institutes of Health. In addition, Dr. Marsh is the Associate Program Director for the Adult Neurology Residency Program and the Vice Chair of Education for the department, focusing on building programs for training the next generation of physician-scientists. Over the years she has mentored over 35 undergraduate, graduate, medical, and post-doctoral students; along with countless neurology residents and clinical fellows. Nearly 100% have gone on either to begin careers in the neurosciences, or are currently building their research portfolios and clinical practice.
