Stanley P. Fisher, M.D., is co-director of Saint Luke’s Marion Bloch Neuroscience Institute (SLMBNI) in Kansas City, Mo. He joined Saint Luke’s in March 2015 to help advance the neuroscience institute’s clinical practice and research in close collaboration with the University of Missouri–Kansas City School of Medicine.

At UMKC, Dr. Fisher is associate professor in the Department of Neurology and a secondary appointment in the Department of Psychiatry. He was also appointed as Edward T. Matheny, JR/Missouri Endowed Chair in Neurosciences with the mandate to define the future of neuroscience through innovation, research, and state-of-the-art clinical care as well as the management of an academic program of neurosciences.

Before Saint Luke’s, Dr. Fisher was with the Houston Methodist Neurological Institute (HMNI) for nearly a decade. He was founder and co-director of the Movement Disorders and Neurorehabilitation Center at HMNI, elected deputy vice chair of neurology at the Houston Methodist Hospital, associate professor of clinical neurology at Weill Cornell Medical College, and is a fellow of the American Neurological Association. He was also appointed as an associate member of Houston Methodist Research Institute in recognition of his achievement in clinical and translational research.

Under his leadership, the HMNI’s Movement Disorders and Neurorehabilitation Center has become a center of excellence for deep brain stimulation, intrathecal baclofen, and botulinum toxin therapy–with frequent on-site training for neurologists and physiatrists from all over the country. Dr. Fisher was actively involved in training students, residents, and fellows during his tenure and served as a co-chair of the HMNI’s Annual Advances in Neurology seminar for eight years, an event that attracted neuroscientists from every state of the union.

Dr. Fisher was a robotic engineer before returning to Temple University, where he graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in biology and cognitive neuroscience. During his college years, Dr. Fisher was a well-known personal and fitness trainer in Philadelphia.

He graduated from the MCP-Hahnemann School of Medicine in Philadelphia and completed his internship before moving to Texas.

After he completed his residency in neurology and fellowship in movement disorders at the University of Texas–Houston, Dr. Fisher combined his skills as a robotic engineer, fitness trainer, and neurologist to do research on robotically-assisted technology for neurological rehabilitation. He became a nationally recognized expert in the field of neuromodulation, utilizing implantable devices for the treatment of Parkinson disease, tremor, dystonia, spasticity due to stroke, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain, and spinal cord injury. For eight years, he has served as founder and program director for Neurological Rehabilitation at the HealthSouth Center for Neurological Research and Recovery in Houston, which included four acute rehabilitation hospitals throughout the area.

For the last 2 years, he has served as a program director for Neurological Rehabilitation for Reliant Hospitals in the Houston metro area.

Dr. Fisher was involved in clinical research related to psychosis and emotional lability in patients with neurodegenerative disorders. For the last three years, he served as medical director for four Silverado Memory Care communities in Houston.

During his tenure in Houston, Dr. Fisher conducted sponsored and investigator-initiated trials in the field of Parkinson’s disease, stroke, spinal cord injury, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr. Fisher has been invited to lecture nationally and internationally on the topics of Parkinson disease, spasticity, and the use of implantable and robotically-assisted devices for the treatment of the wide variety of neurological diseases.

Dr. Fisher has a special interest in the field of targeted drug delivery and chaired an annual conference on the role of targeted drug delivery in the treatment of pain and neurological diseases. Dr. Fisher was the first neurologist in the United States to implant the Medstream Intrathecal Drug Delivery System and was a main investigator for the device.

Dr. Fisher also was adjunct professor at the Department of Health and Human Performance at the University of Houston and was actively involved in the research on motor control at the Center for Neuromotor and Biomechanics Research at the National Center for Human Performance. He mentored many graduate, PhD, and post-doctoral students in his lab and taught an annual graduate seminar on neurorehabilitation at the University of Houston.

During his tenure in Houston, Dr. Fisher has served on the board of multiple professional and charitable organizations, including Houston Neurological Society, Texas Neurological Society (TNS), and Houston Area Parkinson Society. He also served as a president of Harris County Neurological Society from 2008 to 2009 and as a president of Houston Neurological Society from 2013 to 2015. Dr. Fisher was program director for the TNS in 2013 and continued to chair residents’ annual poster competition for many years. As the regional leader, he fostered an unprecedented collaboration between the three academic institutions in the Texas Medical Center that encouraged mutual research, education, as well as resident and junior faculty development.

Dr. Fisher very frequently spoke to patient support groups around the country to educate and encourage people with chronic neurodegenerative diseases.

Dr. Fisher was actively involved in the academic life of the Houston Methodist Hospital and was one of the founding members of the continuing medical education (CME) committee where he served for six years. He was also chair of the care management performance improvement committee (CMPI) for the neurology service line during his term.

Biography

Dr. Jianwei Jiao earned his M.D. in 1994 and Ph.D. in 2000 in China. He had postdoctoral training in molecular neuroscience at the Department of Pharmacology at Sate University of New York at Buffalo. From 2002 to 2013, he had worked as a research associate at the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Chicago. He has published 10 peer-reviewed research articles. He had served as a peer reviewer for the journal of PLoS-One. In 2013, he started adult psychiatric residency training at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Center for Behavioral Medicine.

After his residency training, he was recruited as a faculty member at Center for Behavioral Medicine and Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, school of medicine. His clinical duty is a staff psychiatrist for an inpatient unit at CBM. He will also be involved in teaching and supervising psychiatry residents and medical students. He has received research support from UMKC School of Medicine and Department of Psychiatry to continue his clinical research projects. His research interests are to identify genetic markers for treatment refractory schizophrenia. His ultimate clinic goal is to develop new treatment options, including pharmacological interventions as well as TMS approaches, for treatment refractory schizophrenia.
