Stephen Selkirk, MD, PhD

Graduated: 2006
Current Position: Assistant Professor of Neurology, Case Western Reserve University
Research Interests: immunology of demyelinating disease, mechanisms of myelin repair

"My PhD focused on the neuroinflammatory response against aberrant myelin proteins. I was originally attracted to the Neurology Residency at CWRU by the work of Dr. Robert H. Miller in myelin repair. During my residency I was able to initiate bench research in Dr. Miller's laboratory. This work formed the preliminary data that was used for my Career Development Award application. This award allowed me to develop a novel model of oligodendrocyte cell death and better study the process of myelin repair."
