October 20, 1998|CHRISTINE CASTRO and JAMES MEIER

UC Irvine recently named Dr. Mark Fisher, a noted neurologist who specializes in the treatment of strokes, as its chairman of the College of Medicine's department of neurology. He will replace Dr. Stanley van den Noort, who remains on the faculty as a professor.

As chairman, Fisher will supervise the department's clinical and academic programs. He also will help establish a stroke center at UCI Medical Center in Orange, providing comprehensive emergency and long-term treatment to stroke victims.

He is working now on a $5.5-million project from the National Institutes of Health that is exploring how infections may affect the risk of stroke.
