Research

Since his arrival at Columbia, Dr. Di Tullio's research activity has primarily focused on the identification and study of newer cardioembolic sources for stroke, especially patent foramen ovale and aortic arch atheromas, applying transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography to the clinical and epidemiological investigation of these abnormalities. The study population for these projects has been drawn from the Northern Manhattan Stroke Study (NOMASS), a large epidemiological study on stroke risk factors, incidence and outcome. This line of research has resulted in the publication of numerous peer-reviewed articles and abstracts, book chapters and comprehensive review articles, and to the awarding of four large NIH grants as Principal Investigator, including a grant to mentor younger investigators in the field of cardioembolic stroke.
