Welcome to the Neuromuscular Research Laboratory in the Department of Neurology of McGovern Medical School at UTHealth. We are motivated by opportunities to improve treatments for individuals with peripheral neuropathies, and the laboratory is dedicated to discovering treatments to enhance nerve repair in patients with peripheral neuropathies.

Our research spans a wide range of clinical and basic topics. Our research seeks fundamental understanding of the mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of autoimmune neuropathies and the process of axon regeneration and nerve repair. This laboratory also provides training for post-graduate scholars and for medical, graduate, and selected undergraduate students. Our personnel include diverse, independent-minded group of post-doctoral fellows, research scientists, research faculty, and staff who share space resources and a common vision. We hope that this website can provide valuable information to patients, donors, clinicians, researchers, applicants, and anyone interested in neuromuscular diseases.
