Professor Elizabeth Engle. Professor Elizabeth Engle is a Professor of Neurology and Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator. Her lab is interested in the genetic mechanisms that mediate cranial motor neuron development and congenital disorders of eye and face movement that arise when these genes are impaired. She has produced a number of pioneering tubulinopathy papers highlighting the role of tubulin gene variants in the onset of congenital extraocular muscle disorders (Tischfield et al., 2010; Cederquist et al., 2012; Chew et al., 2013; Whitman et al., 2015; Latremoliere et al., 2018 Jurgens et al., 2021). In recognition of her research, she has received multiple honours including the E. Mead Johnson Award for Research in Pediatrics from the Society for Pediatric Research, the Sidney Carter Award in Child Neurology from the American Academy of Neurology, and election to the National Academy of Medicine.
