New grant support

Congratulations to Dr. Kelly Sloane on receiving a CTSA KL2 Mentored Career Development award! Dr. Sloane’s research focuses on the use of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) — a non-invasive, low-cost neuromodulatory intervention — to target cognitive performance in the immediate post-stroke period. She will be collaborating with the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Good Shepherd Penn Partners.
