Vilas Menon, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Neurological Sciences Columbia University Irving Medical Center

Dr. Menon obtained his PhD in Applied Mathematics from Northwestern University, where he studied signal integration and information processing in neurons. Prior to joining Columbia, he spent several years as a staff scientist at the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle, WA, and as a Fellow at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus, developing new analytical methods for large-scale single-cell and bulk molecular data analysis. At Columbia, his lab applies state-of-the-art computational and experimental methods to generate and analyze large-scale molecular data in the context of neurological disease. In particular, his group investigates signatures of differential vulnerability and resistance at both the cell type and individual level in neurodegenerative diseases (including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s) and neuroimmune diseases (such as Multiple Sclerosis).
