About Matthew R Burns

Matthew R. Burns, MD, PhD, is an assistant professor with the department of neurology at the University of Florida College of Medicine.

Dr. Burns received his medical degree and doctorate degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago. After doing an internal medicine internship at NorthShore University HealthSystem in Chicago, he completed his neurology residency at the University of Chicago Medical Center. He then pursued his movement disorders fellowship at the University of Florida.

Dr. Burns is board-certified in neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. In addition to being actively involved in various research projects, he serves as a lecturer for both the Parkinson’s Foundation and the Norman Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases at UF Health. Dr. Burns has contributed to many publications, with his research interests including aging, deep brain stimulation, neurodegenerative disorders and bodily coordination.

His long-term career goal is to translate his knowledge of brain machine interface, electrophysiology, viral vectors and neurodegenerative diseases through extramural support into therapies for patients who have movement disorders and dementia.
