Dr. Jeffrey Statland is an Associate Professor of neurology at the University of Kansas Medical Center with both clinical and research training in neuromuscular diseases. His primary research interest is in FSHD (Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy) which is one of the most prevalent adult muscular dystrophies. He has identified potential therapeutic targets, resulting in a pressing need to develop sensitive, disease-relevant outcome measures for clinical trials.

Dr. Jeffery’s current research target is focused on FSHD disease-specific patient reported health inventory, an FSHD-specific functional rating scale, and the reliability of electrical impedance myography. He is also attempting to develop molecular and neuroimaging biomarkers of disease activity for future FSHD clinical trials. Together with his collaborators, he hopes to develop the institutional infrastructure and tools to run high-quality, efficient clinical trials.
