Douglas Arnold, MD is currently Professor, Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill University, Director of the Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Unit in the Brain Imaging Center at the Montreal Neurological Institute, and President of NeuroRx Research, a central nervous system imaging clinical research organization. He has special expertise in advanced (magnetic resonance imaging) MRI acquisition and analysis techniques, particularly as they relate to understanding the evolution of multiple sclerosis and neurodegeneration. Dr. Arnold combines advanced image processing of conventional structural images with non-conventional MRI acquisition techniques such as magnetization transfer imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopy to understand how inflammation in MS relates to injury to myelin, and neurons. He also uses these techniques to understand how new therapies for MS affect the pathobiology ofthe disease.
Dr. Arnold received his medical degree from Cornell University. He completed his residency in Neurology at McGill University and a post-doctoral fellowship in Magnetic Resonance at the University of Oxford.
