John Stahl, MD, PhD
Graduated: 1996
Current Position: Professor of Neurology, CWRU
Research Interests: neurophysiology of vestibular system, treatment of disorders of cerebellum and eye movements

"My PhD research focused on the neurophysiology of the vestibulocerebellum. I was originally attracted to the CWRU Neurology program by the presence on the faculty of Dr. R. John Leigh, the co-author of Leigh and Zee's Neurology of Eye Movements. During my PGY3 and PGY4 years, Dr. Leigh provided the guidance and resources for me to develop a successful NIH K08 application to study coordination of head and eye movements. The experience he made possible allowed me negotiate the often awkward jump from a PhD and a neurology residency to a career combining patient care and basic neuroscience research."
