CNND Fellowship Program Director, M & F Seay Professor of Clinical Neuropharm in Neurology
Dr. Clifford is Medical Director for the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Disease (DIAN) Treatment Trial. He has been a leader in research on progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy. He has served as residency program director in neurology and currently leads the Ethiopia site for the Global Scholars in Medicine of WUSTL. He has performed international research in Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa, Thailand, Guinea Bissau, The Gambia and Senegal.
CNND Co-Director, Professor of Neurology
Dr. Cross is a specialist in MS care and research. Her laboratory currently focuses on advanced imaging studies of neurological diseases, imaging and blood biomarkers to predict outcomes in MS, and the role(s) of B cells in MS and related diseases. She was funded by the National MS Society in 2002 to do one of the first studies of B cell depletion in MS patients, in an “add-on” study of rituximab in 30 MS patients who were failing beta-interferons or glatiramer acetate.
A. Assistant Professor, Neurology
Dr. Dunham is a clinical educator with an outpatient clinic focus on investigating treatments and biomarkers for infectious and autoimmune encephalitis. Building a patient registry with longitudinal follow up of neurocognitive assessments and corresponding MRIs of the brain along with and serum/cerebrospinal fluid profiles for immunophenotypic biomarkers of disease.
CNND Director; Professor of Medicine, Pathology & Immunology, Neuroscience
Dr. Klein's Lab is a neuroimmunology research laboratory primarily interested in defining fundamental processes of the neuroimmune system – which is structurally and cellularly distinct from the peripheral immune system – that protect neurons from infection and inflammation.
Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Genetics
Dr. Li is broadly interested in neuroimmunology with a focus on microglial biology. The overarching goal of the Li laboratory is to gain a better understanding of microglial functions in the establishment of the nervous system, as well as how changes in these functions contribute to neurological diseases.
William R. Orthwein Jr. & Laura Rand Orthwein Professor of Radiology and Pediatrics Senior Vice Chair & Division Chief, Diagnostic Radiology
Dr. McKinstry combines his clinical interest in pediatric neuroradiology with his expertise in magnetic resonance imaging to study the impact of various insults (e.g. inflammatory, genetic, vascular, metabolic) on the developing brain.
Assistant Professor of Neurology
Research in Saligrama laboratory is focused on determining the phenotype, function, and specificity of T cells in neurological disorders. Goal is to gain novel scientific knowledge in regard to adaptive immune responses in neurological diseases that will help guide clinical practice.
