Jorge Oksenberg, PhD

G.A. Zimmermann Endowed Chair in Neurology Professor of Neurology

Dr. Oksenberg’s research is focused on human immunogenetics and autoimmunity, and he is a leading investigator in the International Multiple Sclerosis Genetics Consortium. The availability of sensitive and high-capacity methods for analysis of gene variation and expression, combined with the implementation of algorithms that predict behaviors in complex biological circuits, provides an outstanding opportunity to facilitate progress in the integration of multiple data sources and functional interpretation of physiological and laboratory results. His goal is to illuminate fully the genetics of autoimmune demyelination.
