Dr. Masurkar earned his B.S. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and M.D., Ph.D. in neuroscience from Yale University. He completed his neurology residency, behavioral neurology fellowship and postdoctoral scientific training at Columbia University. In 2016 he joined the Department of Neurology at the NYU School of Medicine, where he is an Assistant Professor of Neurology and Neuroscience & Physiology. There, he combines clinical practice with a translational research program on early Alzheimer's. His interests focus on improving our understanding of neural circuits vulnerable at early stages and clinical symptoms that arise from dysfunction in those structures. To accomplish this, he leads a basic science team applying electrophysiological and molecular techniques in animal models, and also directs the Clinical Core of the NYU Alzheimer's Disease Center to address these issues in human subjects. He is also investigator on interventional clinical trials focused on early Alzheimer's.
