Elisabeth B. Marsh, MD


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. She leads a team of vascular neurologists, emergency medicine physicians, neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists, neurointensivists, and rehabilitation specialists, who work together to provide the highest level of care to all stroke patients, resulting in better functional outcomes and improved quality of life.
