 Dr Padma Srivastava has a primary area of interest in Stroke, Vascular Dementia and Multiple Sclerosis besides actively participating in the Epilepsy Program at AIIMS. She initiated the Hyperacute Reperfusion strategies including the thrombolysis program  for acute ischemic stroke at AIIMS. Christened “Code-Red”, with tissue plasminogen activator, AIIMS is  the first public sector hospital to launch this program. She is also an active and founding member of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at AIIMS including the Epilepsy Surgery and Intractable Epilepsy Clinic. Dr Padma has  organized national and international CMEs and Symposia  including the  Indo-US Symposium on Cerebrovascular Disorders, the V National Conference of the Indian Stroke Association and the International Stroke Update . Presently she is working on projects like Human autologous stem cell therapy in Stroke; and in Cerebral palsy, which are funded by the National scientific bodies such as Directorate of Science and Technology and Directorate of Biotechnology. Her other areas of active research interest include, role of unconventional risk factors, for stroke; role of stroke genetics; genetics in vascular dementia, comprehensive stroke rehabilitation programs and has  been working on association and outcomes of Hyperhomosyteinemia in stroke, lipid profile and association with stroke and stroke subtypes; risk factor profile of stroke in India with special reference to stroke in young etc. She is the National Co-ordinator for the SITS-NEW registry for thrombolysis for stroke data from India, the National Co-ordinator for the SITS-SEARS registry with the Karolinska University and is an active member of the National Stroke Surveillance program for India, the National Stroke Registry, the National Prevention Programs for Noncommunicable Diseases of India. She is currently the President of the Indian Stroke Association. She has been the visiting professor to the Department of Neurology, UMASS, Boston.
