"When I arrived at CWRU, I had already completed by PhD studies in Neuroscience and was set on a career in Neuro-oncology. My residency training at CWRU taught me the power of the clinical examination and the process by which clinical observations are translated into research questions. This became the foundation for my own translational research into the mechanisms that underlie autoimmune and paraneoplastic neurologic disorders and allowed my colleagues and I to identify novel immune-mediated syndromes. At CWRU, there was a mentor in every corner and each had an infectious passion for Clinical and Academic Neurology. A non-inclusive list of those that to this day, I carry their lessons with me every day include Drs. Robert Daroff, Joseph Foley, Sami Harik, Robert Ruff, James Schmidley, Susan Chester, Dennis Landis and John Leigh."
