Purroy, Francisco

I was born in 1974 in Lleida, Spain and I obtained my degree in Medicine at the University of Lleida in 1998. I began my training in the field of Neurovascular diseases in the year 2000 at the University Hospital of Vall d’Hebron in Barcelona. Since 2006 I have worked in the Stroke Unit at the University Hospital Arnau de Vilanova in Lleida. I have also led a Clinical Research group related to transient ischemia in the Biomedical Research Institute of Lleida (IRBLLEIDA). During this time we have investigated the prognostic and diagnostic usefulness of diffusion-weighted images on MRI and biomarkers. In the last years we have applied metabolomics technics in order to find new biomarkers related to stroke recurrence. Furthermore, I conducted a multicenter TIA Study I which more than 1000 patients were included. Finally, I have been a professor of Medicine in the University of Lleida since 2006.
