Farewell to Dr. Mike Mullen

After more than 15 years with the Penn Stroke team, Dr. Mike Mullen is leaving us to become the Stroke Director across town at Temple University.  We are not at all happy to see him go  – Mike has been such an integral part of our team, bringing an incredible mix of energy, leadership, and integrity to our program.  And beyond that, he has been a good friend.  No doubt this is a great opportunity for Mike, and we are excited about the future collaborations that will develop between Penn and Temple with his move.  We wish him great success!
