Michael Wilson, MD
I am a neurologist specializing in infectious and autoimmune diseases of the central nervous system. I see patients with autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis as well as patients with a wide array of infectious diseases that impact the nervous system like HIV, neurocysticercosis, neurosyphilis, viral encephalitis and fungal infections like coccidiomycosis (valley fever). In collaboration with the DeRisi Lab in the Dept. of Biochemistry and Biophysics, my laboratory applies cutting edge metagenomic and immune repertoire sequencing techniques as well as phage display technologies to enhance our understanding of the causes and immunopathogenesis of multiple sclerosis as well as autoimmune and infectious causes of meningoencephalitis.
