Deconstructing Dystonia: More than a Disorder of Movement
After medical school in Mumbai, India, Dr. Mahajan obtained a Masters in Epidemiology with a concentration in aging at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and a certificate in gerontology from the Johns Hopkins Center of Aging and Health in Baltimore, MD. He completed his Neurology residency at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit and Movement disorders fellowship at the University of Cincinnati where he was the 2019 DMRF clinical fellow. Prior to his current role, he served as faculty for 3 years as an Assistant Professor at Rush University Medical Center where he led the Dystonia research program.
His primary research interests lie in the pathophysiology and clinical manifestations of dystonia. For his work on cervical dystonia and substance abuse using the Dystonia coalition database, he received the 2018 AAN Young Investigators award. He received the 2018 junior investigator award from the Parkinson Study Group (PSG) for work using magnetoencephalography (MEG) in cervical dystonia. He was acknowledged as an Emerging leader in Dystonia research by the DMRF in 2023. His research has received funding from the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF), Sunflower Parkinson’s disease Foundation and the Parkinson’s Foundation.
Please note, this meeting will not be recorded. Dr. Mahajan will probably only be with us for the first hour so we appreciate you making every effort to login on time.
