Introduction: Sindhu Ramchandren, M.D., M.S.

Welcome to the Ramchandren research site! Here you will find information on our clinics and research.

Some background information: I completed my Medical training at the University of Texas-Houston, my Neurology residency at the University of Pennsylvania, my Fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology- EMG at Johns Hopkins University under Dr. David Cornblath and Dr. Vinay Chaudhry, and a Master of Science in Clinical Research and Statistics at the University of Michigan, as a post-doctoral Research Fellow under Dr. Eva Feldman.  

From 2008-2013, I was an Assistant Professor at Wayne State University, where I had the privilege to work with and learn from giants in the field of Neuromuscular Disease- Dr. Mike Shy, Dr. Rich Lewis, and Dr. Bob Lisak.  I joined the University of Michigan's Neurology Department in 2013, and I currently direct the University of Michigan’s Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Multidisciplinary clinics.  Our MDA-supported Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) Clinic has been recognized as one of 10 Centers of Excellence in clinical and research care in the United States, by the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA).  Please call our Clinic Coordinator, Kim Creamer, at 734-647-3863 if you wish to schedule an appointment at our clinics.

My research mission is to identify and analyze the factors contributing to increased disease burden in patients with genetic neuromuscular diseases, using my background as a physician-scientist with advanced training in neurology, neuromuscular disease and pathology, EMG, clinical research design and statistical analysis.  Understanding the constructs underlying disease burden will help identify directed interventions that improve the quality of life and functional status of patients with genetic neuromuscular disease.

The links on the left will provide some information about our on-going studies and results to date. You can reach me at sindhur@umich.edu if you have specific questions relating to my research or clinical interests. Thanks for visiting!
