Stephen G. Waxman, MD, Ph.D.

Bridget Marie Flaherty Professor of Neurology, Neurobiology and Pharmacology

I am also Director of the Center for Neuroscience & Regeneration Research. My research capitalizes on the “molecular revolution” to find new therapies for disorders of the nervous system. Having unraveled the molecular basis for remissions in multiple sclerosis and having identified, for the first time, a gene that controls pain sensitivitiy in humans, we are moving as rapidly as we can toward new, and more effective therapies.
