Sheng-Han Kuo, MD

Columbia University

Dr. Kuo is a physician-scientist specializing in cerebellar disorders. He received his neurology training at Baylor College of Medicine and he moved to Columbia University for Movement Disorders fellowship. During his fellowship, he saw patients with tremor and ataxia, and treatment options are very limited to them. Therefore, he decided to dedicate his academic career to find therapies. His lab uses multi-disciplinary approaches, including postmortem human brains, mouse models, optogenetic tools, and human physiology techniques, to understand cerebellar circuitry and to advance therapies for ataxia and tremor.
