Dr. Peter Kang, Vice Chair of Research
Research is a critical element in the fight against neurological disease; it paves the way for the development and implementation of new therapies and provides opportunities to expand our academic mission. Understanding the root cause of neurological disorders is a hallmark of the neurology research enterprise. Our physicians pioneer new surgical therapies for Parkinson's disease and dystonia and the application of deep brain stimulation for movement and psychiatric disorders, and multidisciplinary studies in diseases of muscle and nerve with a world-class Center for Magnetic Resonance Imaging illustrate the critical role played by research in the delivery of clinical care. There are numerous opportunities for faculty members, fellows and residents to develop clinical and basic research skills in virtually any area of interest.
