Biography

Patricia Musolino MD, PhD is a critical care and vascular pediatric and adult neurologist with expertise in neuro inflammation and leukodistrophies. Former Partners Neurology residency graduate she stayed at MGH for neurocritical care and vascular neurology fellowship and she is currently junior faculty in the divisions of Neurocritical Care, Stroke and Child Neurology. She cares for patients in the Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit, the Emergency Department and the outpatient Stroke clinic. Following her MD and PhD in Buenos Aires and a post doctoral research fellowship at MGH under the NINDS R25 program she is currently developing a lab under an NINDS K12 award. Dr. Musoli?s translational and clinical research lab, directed by Dr. Eichler, explores the relationship of mutant genes to specific biochemical defects and their contribution to neurodegeneration. She is particularly interested in the mechanisms by which bone marrow derived cells participate in neuro-inflammation and demyelination.

Research

Our translational and clinical research lab, directed by Dr.Eichler, explores the relationship of mutant genes to specific biochemical defects and their contribution to neurodegeneration. I am particularly interested in the mechanisms by which bone marrow derived cells participate in neuro-inflammation and interact with the neurovascular unit specially in leukodistrophies and during acute ischemic stroke. Using state of the art imaging, genetic and molecular biology techniques we study the mechanisms by which bone marrow transplantation modifies brain demyelination and inflammation.
