About Sub Subramony
Dr. S. H. Subramony was trained in Neurology and Electromyography/ Neuromuscular diseases at the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, OH. Subsequent to that, he was on the faculty at the University of Mississippi Medical Center from (from 1980 to 2007), where he was named the Billy Guyton Distinguished Professor of Neurology. Later, at University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston where he was appointed the Charlotte Warmoth Professor of Neurology (2007 to 2009 ), before coming to University of Florida in 2009. He has directed the adult Muscular Dystrophy clinics and the Ataxia Clinic at UF since then.
Over the last 25 years, he has had an investigative interest in genetically determined neuromuscular disorders and hereditary ataxias. He was an active participant in many gene identification studies in these disorders and more recently has been focused on translational research to bring innovative therapies to these disorders. He has active collaborations with the Powell Gene Therapy center and the Center for Neurogenetics at UF allowing for bench to bedside translation. He is an active member of national study groups in Friedreich Ataxia, myotonic muscular dystrophy and spinocerebellar ataxias and site investigator for federally funded clinical research studies in all these disorders. In addition, he is the site investigator for many industry funded clinical trials in these diseases. Dr. Subramony is considered one of the world leading experts in these fields.
His clinical experience includes the management of patients with all types of neuromuscular diseases including ALS, myasthenia gravis, polymyositis, neuropathies and muscular dystrophies. Currently he focuses on genetic neuromuscular diseases and ataxias and offers treatment that includes electromyography, muscle biopsy when appropriate, appropriate genetic testing and referral to ancillary services such as physical, occupational and speech therapy and evaluation for mobility aids.

My key research interests include phenotypic characterization, phenotype-genotype correlations and pathogenic mechansims in genetically induced cerebellar ataxias and muscular dystrophies. In addition, I also am interested in developing assessment methods, biomarker discovery and therapeutic modalities for such diseases.
