Dr. Fredric Gorin is a board-certified Neurologist and Chair of the Department of Neurology at University of California Davis Health System. He received doctoral training as a neuropharmacologist in computer-based drug design in biophysics and physiology. Over the past decade he have identified and designed novel small-molecule therapies to treat aggressive forms of primary brain cancers such as glioblastomas, neuroblastomas and medulloblastomas, as well as cancers that have spread to the central nervous system.  Our research group also researches new drugs for treating the intracranial swelling that often accompanies conditions such as traumatic brain injury and stroke and neuroinflammation causing neuropathic pain.
