Roopali Gandhi's Biography

Roopali Gandhi, Assistant Professor in Neurology, Head of MS Biomarkers, Brigham and Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School

Dr. Roopali Gandhi Assistant Professor in Neurology and Head of MS biomarkers at BWH. Dr. Gandhi helped in developing several novel projects for identifying a biomarker for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). During her research with circulating miRNAs, she identified several potential miRNAs, which are playing an important role in identifying MS disease staging and were linked to clinical parameters. She is now focused on major research that includes: (1) identification of immune biomarkers in MS, (2) study the novel molecular mechanism of immune cell regulation, and (3) understand the mechanism of action of therapies used for Multiple Sclerosis. She is member of neurology and immunology societies and an ad-hoc reviewer of neurology journals and grants.

A major challenge in MS is to develop immune biomarkers that will allow a better understanding of an individual Multiple Sclerosis patient including response to therapy and disease stage. Stable expression of miRNA in plasma and serum, makes them ideal potential immune biomarker.  We found that the expression of miRNAs could be used to differentiate MS patients from control and other neurologic diseases and also to find differences among various clinical groups of MS patients.
