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. His investigative interests have been in the field of inherited ataxias and he brings a wealth of experience in evaluating and managing patients with ataxias. He was involved in the identification and characterization of many families with spinocerebellar ataxias for gene discoveries such as SCA 1, SCA 3 and SCA 6 and continues this effort in additional families. He has also been involved in identifying novel mutations in some muscle diseases such as central core disease and Bethlem myopathy. He continues to have an active research role in natural history studies of spinocerebellar ataxias and Friedreich ataxia, and has initiated many other clinical projects in these diseases including clinical trials. At UF, he co-directs the Ataxia Clinic in the Movement Disorder Center with Dr Tetsuo Ashizawa, Chair of the Department of Neurology. He is also the chief of the Neuromuscular Division and director of the Muscular Dystrophy Association Clinics at UF and as such is involved in ongoing research in muscular dystrophies such as myotonic dystrophy and Duchenne muscular dystrophy. He is actively collaborating in clinical research in other genetic diseases such as mitochondrial disorders and pyruvate dehydrogenease complex deficiency.
