Padmesh Rajput, PhD

The research of Padmesh Rajput, PhD, focuses on translational and preclinical research to establish effective therapeutic approaches for stroke therapy, as well as determining the role of thrombin and thrombin receptors in pathophysiology of stroke. He is developing new therapeutic and diagnostic approaches using microRNA and exosomes in ischemia, as well as developing clinically relevant models of hypothermia therapy for stroke.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
