Raymond P. Roos, MD

Raymond P. Roos, MD, is a board-certified neurologist who is an established expert on neurodegenerative diseases (such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and prion diseases (e.g., Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease), multiple sclerosis (MS), inflammatory central nervous system diseases, and neuropathy. He directs the ALS/Motor Neuron Disease clinic.

A basic goal of Dr. Roos' research studies is to use molecular techniques to better understand the pathogenesis of MS and ALS. For instance, in one investigation, he and his colleagues sought to identify genes and gene products critical to the death and survival of motor neurons — especially as related to neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS. The lab uses viruses and transgenic mouse models in order to clarify the mechanisms by which mutant genes kill the target neurons.
