S. Charles Cho, MD
Clinical Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Clinical Professor (By courtesy), Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsClinical research focused on peripheral nerve and muscle disorders. Also involved with prevention of cerebrovascular disesase in the intraoperative setting. Ongoing clincial studies include treatments for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Inflammatory Demyelinating Neuropathy and HIV neuropathic pain.
Eun Young Choi, PhD
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Choi is broadly interested in mapping the brain’s connectivity and characterizing its functional dynamics using advanced neuroimaging and clinical neurophysiological methods, as well as utilizing this information to identify individual-specific neurosurgical targets for neuromodulation (e.g., deep brain stimulation). Her prior work has mapped the functional and connectional organization of the striatum using neuroimaging and neuroanatomical connectivity methods. She is currently focused on the use of thalamic deep brain stimulation to improve memory and attention in traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer’s disease.
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy major research interests include cancer epidemiology with a concentration in early detection and screening for cancer. My current research focuses on second malignancies among cancer survivors with special interests in causal inference from real-world observational data sources, dynamic risk predictive modeling, and simulation models of cancer control interventions on their effects on population trends in incidence and mortality. My research involves the application of competing-risk and high-dimensional data analysis using large population-based prospective cohorts, clinical trial data, electronic health records extracted through the data mining process, and cancer genomics data.
