Joanna Mattis, MD PhD

Stanford School of Medicine, 2015

Most of my free time is spent with my two sons and my husband. We are regulars at the Philadelphia Zoo and the Please Touch Museum, as well as our local playground. My husband is British and we visit England as often as possible. I previously played the clarinet and am hoping to start that again before the end of residency.

I am interested in movement disorders, although I am not yet decided and am also considering sleep or epilepsy. I am particularly interested in Deep Brain Stimulation and other therapeutics targeting neural circuits. On the research side, my PhD focused on the development and application of optogenetic tools for circuit dissection.
