Jeffrey Loeb, MD, PhD, has made important contributions to neurological science in the fields of neuregulin in development as well as the functional and genomics of human epilepsy and has been actively translating these basic discoveries into a data repository and developing novel therapeutics for neurological disorders ranging from multiple sclerosis, ALS, and epilepsy. He is the recipient of multiple grants from the NIH, NSF, and many private foundations and continues to excel in the arena of translational medicine. Dr. Loeb brings to UIC a strong reputation for successful, multidisciplinary program development and collaboration with both academic and private industry to produce important research and new approaches to neurological treatments including pioneering a systems biology approach that links genes, proteins, and molecules to epileptic activities in the human brain. Further, he is one of the pioneers in the field of growth factor signaling in motor neurons, and the developer of novel, patented therapeutics for a variety of human diseases, including the development of an innovative drug targeting technology that could significantly improve the treatment of brain disorders and cancer.
