Dr Jeffrey Neul, M.D. Ph.D.

Dr. Jeffrey Neul is Associate Professor of the Department of Pediatrics, Section of Neurology, Baylor College of Medicine, the Medical Co-Director of The Blue Bird Circle Rett Center, and the Petrello Scholar at the Duncan Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, Texas.

Dr. Neul received his M.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, Illinois, and completed his residency and fellowship programs at Baylor College of Medicine. He has board certification in Neurology, with Special Competency in Child Neurology and is a member of the Child Neurology Society, the American Academy of Neurology, and the Society for Neuroscience. He is active both in laboratory and clinical research, and these projects are funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the International Rett Syndrome Foundation.

Dr. Neul is interested in translating the knowledge acquired from basic science research into potential therapies for Rett syndrome. He is actively using mouse models of Rett syndrome to expose the pathophysiological mechanisms of disease and to conduct preclinical trials of potential therapies. Doctor Nuel is currently seeing Foxg1 patients, and is very excited to begin this new chapter of research. He will soon begin to study the genetic aspects of Foxg1 by using mouse models to further understand the various mutations, all with a focus on developing possible treatments.
