Kyle Binder MDClinical Fellow, Neuroimmunology Clinic, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland
Dr. Binder received his M.D. and Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics and Genomics from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. His Ph.D. research in skin bioprinting was performed in conjunction with the Armed Forces Institutes for Regenerative Medicine to assist with burn repair for wounded soldiers. He received several research awards for his work in this field. During medical school he developed a passion for Neurology and completed his residency in the Neurology Residency Program at Wake Forest University, where he received the Resident Teaching Award and the Resident Research Award.
Dr. Binder completed a 3-year fellowship in Neuroimmunology at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). During this fellowship he was involved in determining the mechanisms of antigen presentation in the inflamed central nervous system as well as generating a system for next-generation genetic sequencing to understand the pathophysiology of multiple sclerosis.
Although Dr. Binder specializes in treatment of immune-mediated neurological disorders, his fellowship experience at NINDS provided him with broad knowledge related to diagnosis and management of rare neurological disorders in other areas such as dementia, paraneoplastic syndromes, and neuromuscular syndromes.
