Alan “Chuck” Dorval, Ph.D

Chuck Dorval is a USTAR assistant professor of bioengineering at the University of Utah and is studying how to fight off and cure neurological diseases that may destroy our brains and nervous system. Dorval’s research concentrates on a new, effective therapy for neurological disorders known as deep brain simulation. An electrode is placed deep into the brain during surgery and electrical signals are sent to stimulate target nuclei through quick shocks. This could soon be applied to patients with Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders such as obsessive compulsive disorder and autism.
