Heidi Schambra, MD

NYU Langone

Heidi Schambra, MD is an Associate Professor of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine, Director of the Neuro-Epidemiology Division, Director of Research Strategy in Neurology, and PI of the Mobilis Lab at NYU Langone. Dr. Schambra is a physician-scientist who completed her medical training at Emory University, residency in the Mass General Brigham Neurology program, and neurorehabilitation fellowship at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. During and following her clinical education, she obtained clinical research training in motor neurophysiology, neuromodulation, and stroke recovery at the NIH and Columbia University. Funded by the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association, Dr. Schambra’s research focuses on elucidating neural mechanisms of motor recovery after stroke. Her laboratory also focuses on building measurement tools to facilitate rehabilitation dosing, and on developing mechanistically guided interventions to boost recovery. Her laboratory uses noninvasive and invasive neuromodulation, advanced neuroimaging, wearable sensing technologies, artificial intelligence, and clinical and behavioral assays to understand and help individuals recovering from stroke.
