Clinical Biography
Dr. Ulane completed her Ph.D. thesis work in the laboratory of Dr. Curt Horvath studying molecular and biochemical mechanisms of paramyxovirus inhibition of the innate immune system. She identified that the virus V protein appropriates cellular machinery for ubiquitin-mediated degradation of cellular STAT proteins that are key transcriptional activators in the interferon signal transduction pathway.

Research Biography
Dr. Ulane currently serves as a member of the editorial board for the Resident and Fellow section of the journal Neurology. She has written multiple reviews and textbook chapters on various topics in neurology including CIDP, mechanisms of axon loss in Parkinsonís disease, peripheral neuropathic pain, and cranial nerve VII. She is currently involved in a study with Dr. Thomas Brannagan III MD to validate a scale to efficiently and reproducibly evaluate patients with CIDP and other immune-mediated neuropathies.
