Dr. Khurana is the Chief of the Movement Disorders Division at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. His clinical and research interests relate to neurodegenerative movement disorders, particularly Parkinson’s disease. His laboratory is using patient stem cells to model and observe the misfolded forms of alpha-synuclein, a protein that becomes toxic in Parkinson’s patients, with the goal of developing patient-specific therapies. He completed his residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and his postdoctoral studies at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research.
