Dr. Kevin Tracey. The Neural Control of Immunity: Mechanisms and Implications for Treating Patients
No prescriptions, no medicines, no injections. That’s the future. That’s what gets me out of bed in the morning – Kevin Tracey, MD.
Dr. Tracey is a neurosurgeon by training, a groundbreaking researcher and an inventor. He is the president and CEO of the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research (New York) and has published more than 320 research papers in the fields of immunology and neuroscience. The Institute for Scientific Information named him as “Highly Cited Researcher in Immunology,” placing him in the top 0.5% of all publishing scientists.
The major focus of Dr. Tracey’s laboratory is the molecular basis of inflammation and identifying the mechanism by which neurons control the immune system. Dr. Tracey and his colleagues participated in the discovery of the direct inflammatory activity of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF) and revealed that the vagus nerve, which regulates heart rate, digestion, and other essential functions, also manages how the immune system responds to threat (the inflammatory reflex).
These findings enabled Dr. Tracey and his colleagues to develop devices to replace anti-inflammatory drugs in clinical trials of rheumatoid arthritis, a new field termed bioelectronic medicine.
