Biography :

Jerry S. Wolinsky, MD, is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Neurology at the McGovern Medical School, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). He held the Bartels Family and Opal C. Rankin Professorships of Neurology was a member of the faculty of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and served as director of the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Research Group and the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Analysis Center until his retirement in the fall of 2016.

Born in Baltimore, Dr. Wolinsky spends all of his formative years in Chicago, where received his MD from The University of Illinois College of Medicine in 1969. Residency training in clinical neurology, fellowship in experimental neuropathology and a first faculty appointment at The University of California San Francisco followed. There he concentrated on the pathogenesis of viral infections of the nervous system and began to focus clinically on the therapeutics of brain infections and MS.

He joined the faculties of The Johns Hopkins University Schools of Medicine, and Hygiene and Public Health in 1978, where he applied more molecular tools to his basic investigations. Since attracted to Houston by Dr. Frank M. Yatsu to join the faculty of UTHealth in 1983, he settled in Houston. Here his focus increasingly shifted to the design, implementation, conduct, and analysis of clinical trials of MS, and basic and applied research in quantitative MRI analysis and MR spectroscopic imaging. His basic and clinical translational work has been continuously supported through multiple competitive federal and philanthropic organizations, and industry-sponsored projects and clinical trials since 1975.
