UVA-provided lodging information  UVA has both a Ronald McDonald House for families with children and a Hospitality House for adults ($10/night/person). If staying at the Hospitality House, we recommend earplugs and a white noise device (it's near the frats and sororities), a pillow, and, if a hard mattress bothers you, a twin-size foam pad. Family members who are sleeping in the hospital can also use the Hospitality House for showers. The link above provides information about these lodging options as well as local hotels and pet boarding.

Summary of UVA Research Program

2018: The UVA group has recently shown that propranolol, a non-selective beta blocker, has promise as a non-surgical therapy for CCM (Zabramski, Kalani, et al.). The objective of our research program is to elucidate the mechanism of action of propranolol. To accomplish this, we perform transcriptomic analysis using animal models of CCM and primary surgical specimens obtained from patients. By understanding how propranolol affects the biology of remodeling in CCMs, we can initiate a program to identify more selective therapies for this form of stroke.
