Dr. Eva L. Feldman
In 2000, a group of neurologists and neuroscientists came together to form what is now known as the Program for Neurology Research & Discovery. Under the direction of Eva L. Feldman, M.D., Ph.D., Russell N. DeJong Professor of Neurology, the group has undertaken research in some of the most complex and challenging fields of disease. From ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) to the nerve damage that disables people with diabetes, they have made medical discoveries that are bringing treatments to patients. With a combination of scientific expertise, clinical experience, and technical resources found in few other places, the Program for Neurology Research & Discovery is leading the way in translating laboratory discoveries into new patient therapies.
