Dr. Kase’s professional and research interests are in cerebrovascular diseases, with a special interest in intracerebral hemorrhage, carotid artery disease and lacunar infarctions. He has been actively involved in performing clinical studies and clinico-pathologic correlations in intracerebral hemorrhage and cerebral infarction. His research activities have included participation in multicenter NIH-sponsored studies such as the Stroke Data Bank (NINCDS), the Warfarin Aspirin Recurrent Stroke Study (WARSS), the Warfarin vs. Aspirin for Symptomatic Intracranial Disease (WASID) Study, the Secondary Prevention of Small Subcortical Strokes (SPS3) study, and the Insulin Resistance Intervention after Stroke (IRIS) trial, as well as in a number of therapeutic clinical trials. In addition, Dr. Kase has participated in the Framingham Study since 1984, where he has led a number of important epidemiological studies on risk factors in stroke.

Dr. Kase has received numerous distinguished honors for his work in cerebrovascular disease, including Honorary Membership to the Spanish Society of Neurology and the Mexican Association of Cerebrovascular Disease. In 2001, he received the C. Miller Fisher Award for Excellence in Stroke, awarded by the American Stroke Association, Massachusetts Affiliate. In 2002 he was awarded the title of Doctor Honoris Causa from the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
