Michael Fox, MD, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in Neurology at Harvard Medical School and the Director of the Laboratory for Brain Network Imaging and Modulation. He is Associate Director of the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation, Associate Director of the BIDMC Deep Brain Stimulation Program, Assistant Neuroscientist at Massachusetts General Hospital, and a practicing clinical neurologist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Dr. Fox received a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the Ohio State University in 2001 followed by an MD and PhD from Washington University in St. Louis in 2008. Following a medical internship at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, he completed his Neurology Residency and Movement Disorders Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He joined the faculty of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School in 2014.

Research Interests
Clinically, Dr. Fox specializes in the use of both invasive and noninvasive brain stimulation for the treatment of neurological disease. His practice includes deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease, essential tremor, and dystonia as well as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) for treatment of medication-refractory depression.

Dr. Fox’s research focuses on the development of new and improved treatments for neuropsychiatric disease based on understanding brain networks and the effects of brain stimulation. He is a recognized expert in the use of brain network imaging techniques such as resting state functional connectivity MRI and a leader in applying these techniques towards improved brain stimulation therapies. He is the author of numerous highly cited articles in the fields of brain imaging and brain stimulation, teaches courses on these topics at the Martino’s Center for Biomedical Imaging at MGH and the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation at BIDMC, holds multiple patents, and has won several awards for his work.
