Florian Eichler's research efforts currently include the genetics of peroxisomal disorders, lipid metabolism, and spatial aspects of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
Research Investigator Profile
Florian S. Eichler, MD
Associate Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School
Assistant in Neurology, Massachusetts General Hospital
Director, Leukodystrophy Clinic
Director, Center for Rare Neurological Diseases
Dr. Eichler studies monogenetic lipid metabolism disorders of the nervous system at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Specifically, his research focuses on the genetics of peroxisomal disorders, lipid metabolism, and spatial aspects of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Current projects include studies to analyze metabolic changes seen in the brain by MR measures, and to determine the neurotoxicity of newly discovered atypical sphingolipids.
