Laura Pappalardo, MD, PhD, PharmD

Yale School of Medicine, 2019

In my spare time, I enjoy exploring Philly’s parks, museums, and restaurants with my husband and two daughters. Every fall you can find me cheering on Texas Longhorn football.

My research has focused on molecular mechanisms underlying glial involvement in neurological diseases including multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injury. Specifically, I have investigated the functional role of voltage-gated sodium channels in relation to astrogliosis. Clinically, I am interested in neurocritical care and vascular neurology.
