Stephanie Eid is a Research Assistant Professor in the Neurology Department at the University of Michigan. She received her Ph.D. in neuroscience from Paris Descartes University, France, in 2017, and then joined Eva Feldman’s laboratory to pursue postdoctoral work on the contribution of dyslipidemia to diabetic neuropathy. Dr. Eid has a track-record of high-quality publications, has competed successfully for NIH and internal grants, and recently received the NEURODIAB Angelika Bierhaus Prize in Basic Research and the Wolfe Research Prize for Identifying New Causes or Novel Treatment of Axonal Peripheral Neuropathy from the American Neurological Association. She is currently exploring the metabolic interaction of neurons with Schwann cells in neuropathy, beyond the conventional role of Schwann cells in myelination.
