Jeffrey A. Loeb, M.D., Ph.D.
Dr. Loeb is a practicing neurologist who is a Professor in the Department of Neurology and the Associate Director of The Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics at Wayne State University.  He received his M.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.  He subsequently completed a residency in Neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and fellowship training in epilepsy at Harvard's Beth Israel Hospital.  Dr. Loeb conducted postdoctoral work in the Department of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School with Dr. Gerald Fischbach where he became interested in how understanding brain development can teach us what goes wrong in human disease and suggest new treatments. He developed a novel way to create biologically targeted protein therapeutics that formed the basis for a biopharmaceutical company he formed in Michigan called GlyTag.  He also directs a project to develop new treatments for human epilepsy through the identification of the genes, molecular and cellular signals that underlie the abnormal electrical activities that characterize this common neurological disorder. More recently, Dr. Loeb has joined forces with the newly formed ALS Clinical and Research Center at Wayne State University with a goal of developing a better molecular understanding as well as targeted therapeutics.
