Dr. James Liao is Associate Staff in the Center of Neurological Restoration at Cleveland Clinic in Ohio . His clinical and research interests are in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and related disorders where technologies like motion analysis, augmented reality, wearable sensors, neural signal recordings, and deep brain stimulation are used to assess and treat patients. He has a particular interest in the neural control of gait and gait impairment. Dr. Liao’s current research involves developing technology-based assessments and therapies for gait impairments and freezing of gait in PD. He sees patients with these types of disorders at Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Liao has a B.S. in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California, Berkeley. He obtained his PhD in biomedical engineering in 2014 and his MD in 2016 from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. He completed his neurology residency at Case Western Reserve University/University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and a movement disorders fellowship at Cleveland Clinic. He was appointed Associate Staff in 2022.

He is a human movement scientist interested in gait and rehabilitation of persons with neurologic damage or disorders. His research focuses on understanding how the nervous system controls movement and how we can improve movement in people with motor dysfunction.

Dr. David Standaert received MD and PhD degrees from Washington University in St. Louis, MO. Following his neurology residency at the University of Pennsylvania, he was appointed a Howard Hughes Fellow. He completed a three-year research and clinical fellowship in movement disorders at Massachusetts General Hospital.
