Jeff Kramer received his PhD in Molecular and Integrative Physiology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Chapmaign.
He has been conducting both basic and clinical neuroscience research for more than 20 years. Having taken a translational approach to clinical problems in sensory, motor and autonomic dysfunction, he has been able to help bridge the gap between our clinical understanding and the basic science knowledge of various disorders. Jeff has been able to apply this approach and knowledge to build successful research programs in academic, start-up and larger corporate environments. The goals of his research are the development of new and improved therapies with a dedication to the advancement of neuromodulation as a field of scientific endeavor.
