“I like to solve medical problems while at the same time communicating what we are doing with individual patients and families.”

My Approach

I was inspired to become a physician because my sister was stricken with polio and remained paralyzed when I was just five years old. That experience motivated me to want to care for people, and lead me to the field of neuroimmunology. I have since discovered a drug for multiple sclerosis, which is FDA approved. I would like to solve other diseases and make them past history, like polio, something we no longer fear. We have three other new drugs in clinical trials for diseases ranging from type 1 diabetes to progressive multiple sclerosis.
