Biography

Elan D. Louis, MD, MS, leads the Movement Disorders Section at Yale Medicine and specializes in disorders of involuntary movement. With a particular interest in essential tremor (ET), one of the most common neurological disorders, he is the founder of the Essential Tremor Centralized Brain Repository, a national centralized brain bank for the study of ET.

Now, in order to improve Yale Medicine's ability to diagnose and provide pharmacological and neurosurgical treatments for these disorders, he is establishing a Yale Medicine Comprehensive Tremor Center. “We would like to provide multidisciplinary care for our tremor patients," he says. "This is a new and forward-thinking idea."

A professor of neurology and of epidemiology at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Louis has been the principal investigator of numerous National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded research efforts, which have advanced the understanding of myriad aspects of tremor. His research focuses on the genetics, epidemiology and pathophysiology of tremor disorders. Says Dr. Louis, “We are attacking the problem on multiple fronts.” Dr. Louis has been recognized as one of the Top Doctors in the state by Castle Connolly Medical, Ltd.
