Kyle Blackburn, MD
Dr. Blackburn received his medical degree from the University of Kentucky College of Medicine in Lexington, KY, and completed his neurology residency at The University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, TX, where he worked with his Fellowship mentor, Dr. Greenberg. During his fellowship, he plans to launch a study that will collect patient reported outcome measures on adult and pediatric patients with transverse myelitis. The study aims to assess current outcomes in transverse myelitis, and to inform the development of outcome measures for future clinical trials. Dr. Blackburn is a James T. Lubin Fellow.
Jonathan Galli, MD
Dr. Galli received his medical degree from the University of Vermont College of Medicine in Burlington, VT, and completed his neurology residency at The University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT, where he worked with Fellowship mentor, Dr. Clardy. As part of his fellowship training, he plans to conduct research to look for biomarkers in individuals with NMOSD. He intends to see whether individuals have aquaporin4 (AQP4) autoantibodies prior to their symptom onset of NMOSD, and also look for other inflammatory biomarkers. He hopes the study will help us understand how biomarkers occur over the course of the disorder, which will hopefully help identify predictors of disease development, and ultimately therapeutic targets. Dr. Galli is a James T. Lubin Fellow.
