Argye Elizabeth Hillis MD, MAProfessor of Neurology, Executive Vice Chair, Department of Neurology; Director, Cerebrovascular Division, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland
Dr. Argye Elizabeth Hillis is a Professor of Neurology, with joint faculty appointments in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and in Cognitive Science at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Hillis serves as the Executive Vice Chair of the Department of Neurology, and Director of the Cerebrovascular Division of Neurology.
Prior to medical training and neurology residency, Dr. Hillis trained in the fields of speech–language pathology and cognitive neuropsychology, spent a decade in rehabilitation of aphasia, and conducted clinical research focusing on understanding and treating aphasia. Her current research combines longitudinal task-related and task-free functional imaging and structural imaging from the acute stage of stroke through the first year of recovery, with detailed cognitive and language assessments to improve our understanding of how language and other cognitive functions recover after stroke. Her other avenue of research involves developing novel treatment strategies for aphasia. Her research is supported by National Institutes of Health (NIDCD and NINDS). She currently serves on the Board of Directors of World Stroke Organization, and has served on the Board of Directors of the American Neurological Association.
Dr. Hillis received her medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and completed residency training at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in the Department of Neurology.
