Bio

Dr. Jeffrey Neul is chief of the Division of Neurology at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and professor and vice chair of neurosciences at UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Dr. Neul is a native of Chicago and earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received his medical and doctorate degrees from the University of Chicago and completed his residency and fellowship in child neurology at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital.

Dr. Neul is an internationally recognized expert in genetic neurodevelopmental disorders, specifically Rett syndrome. He conducts clinical research and clinical trials on Rett syndrome, genetic research to identify other genetic causes of neurodevelopmental disorders, and translational research using disease models to identify and test novel treatment modalities for these disorders.

As division chief, Dr. Neul is focusing on further enhancing existing strengths in the division, creating new programs of distinction and creating a culture of active clinical research at the point of clinical care in order to bring treatment advances from the lab into the clinic.
