Dr. Russell is a neurologist specializing in movement disorders, dementias, and other neurodegenerative disorders. He is working full-time within a clinical research institute, devoted entirely to clinical research on diseases with major unmet needs. As a former director of the Yale Movement Disorders Consultation Clinic, he continues to work closely with other area neurologists and researchers to try to help improve the future for people with these diseases. Referrals to the Institute for Negenerative Disorders for potential research participation can be made most efficiently through the patient's treating neurologist or other physician.
