Joshua M. Shulman M.D., Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Neurology, Neuroscience, and Molecular & Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and an Investigator in the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children’s Hospital. He received an A.B. in Biochemical Sciences from Harvard College, and his Ph.D. in Genetics from Cambridge University. He subsequently studied at Harvard Medical School and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Division of Health Sciences and Technology, where he received his M.D. and later, an M.M.Sc. in clinical investigation. Dr. Shulman completed his neurology residency and fellowship training in the Harvard/Partners Program at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital and the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Dr. Shulman’s research focuses on understanding the genomic architecture and pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders, including Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease, integrating clinical and translational investigation in human subjects with mechanistic studies in experimental animal models. He also cares for patients with Parkinson’s disease and related disorders at the BCM Parkinson’s Disease Center and Movement Disorders Clinic in Houston.
