Lester Y. Leung, MD, MSc
Vascular Neurologist • Clinical Investigator • Educator

We can do so much together: let's begin.
I am an academic Vascular Neurologist, the Director of a Comprehensive Stroke Center, and an Assistant Professor of Neurology at a medical school in Boston, MA. I am the founder of the Stroke and Young Adults (SAYA) program at Tufts Medical Center, the first multidisciplinary, longitudinal care program for young adults with stroke in the U.S. I conduct epidemiological research on silent brain infarcts (SBI) and stroke in young adults while leading the Tufts Vascular Neurology Research Group. Finally, I have a strong interest in health education for patients, families, and the general public, and medical education for health professionals on stroke and cerebrovascular diseases.
