Dr. Brent Fogel obtained a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics from the Medical College of Wisconsin as well as an M.D. degree. He completed his residency training in Neurology at UCLA as well as a research fellowship in Neurogenetics. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Departments of Neurology and Human Genetics at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Dr. Fogel’s research studies basic molecular mechanisms of neuronal function to understand how impairment can lead to neurodegenerative disorders such as cerebellar ataxia or neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism spectrum disorder. Clinically, Dr. Fogel directs the UCLA Neurogenetics Clinic where he is using genome-wide methods to identify rare and novel causes of neurodegenerative disease, particularly cerebellar ataxia, as well as various forms of leukodystrophy and spastic paraparesis. He is also a member of the UCLA Ataxia Center and directs the Ataxia and Neurogenetics Biobank Program. He has authored many research and clinical articles, reviews, and book chapters on spinocerebellar ataxia, clinical neurogenetics, and neurodevelopmental disease. Dr. Fogel’s work has been funded by the American Academy of Neurology, the American Brain Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Ataxia Foundation.
