What attracted me to Ohio State? The expertise, dedication and passion of the Ohio State team, coupled with a strong collaborative atmosphere and visionary leaders. Ohio State provides a unique environment for innovation that fosters new discoveries, pushes forward the frontiers of medicine and improves patients’ lives.
How am I advancing personalized health care at Ohio State? Our team is working hard to improve the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy and other neurological disorders. Personalized health care will also help us determine the most effective therapy for each patient and monitor the progress of preventive and customized treatments.
