Summary

My clinical and academic interests are focused primarily on inflammatory neuropathy. The inflammatory neuropathies include Guillian-Barre Syndrome (GBS), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), and multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN). Through various studies I hope to improve the techniques that we use to diagnose inflammatory neuropathy and to find new and improved ways to treat inflammatory neuropathy. This includes both investigation of new medications as well as improving the way we utilize standard medications. Every person is different; with different treatment requirements, different reactions to medications, and different goals for treatment. Much of my research aims to customize treatment to individual patient needs so that we can optimize treatment outcomes on an individual level.
