Dr. Marta San Luciano specializes in diagnosing and managing movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease, dystonia, tremor and myoclonus, in both children and adults. She has special interests in caring for patients whose genetic background may increase their risk of Parkinson's disease and dystonia, and in developing biomarkers and measuring outcomes, and in medical and especially surgical therapies in movement disorders.
She received her medical degree from the University of Navarra in Spain and earned a master's degree in clinical research methods from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She completed an internship in internal medicine at Metropolitan Hospital Center in New York and a residency in neurology at Boston University Medical Center where she was elected chief resident during her final year. She served as a clinical and research fellow in movement disorders at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in New York.
She is an active member of the American Academy of Neurology, International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society and the Parkinson Study Group.
Her research interests are broadly in clinical and genetic epidemiology of Parkinson's disease, dystonia and other movement disorders and neurodegenerative illnesses, as well as in outcomes research in neuromodulation surgeries for movement disorders. In particular, some of her current research focuses on identifying predictors of favorable motor outcomes following deep brain stimulation surgery in isolated and acquired dystonia, a disabling movement disorder.
