Danielle Carlson


Danielle is the neuromuscular outpatient clinical research coordinator for the Department of Neurology. Her passion for advancing medicine in hopes to save and improve lives is what brought her to the East Coast. Originally from Minnesota, she came from doing research with the University of Minnesota’s Department of Neurosurgery and the Department of Psychiatry. She worked with Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, trigeminal neuralgia, psychiatric disorders and more. She got her start in neuroscience research at the Brain Sciences Center under Dr. Apostolos Georgopoulos investigating neurodegenerative diseases. 

Outside of research and medicine, Danielle is a "Champion" for the Department with the Yale-United Way Campaign. She is also involved in the community through Adam's House, a local charity that offers grief support for children who have lost loved ones.
