A graduate of the Georgetown University, Dr. Halterman obtained his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Rochester in 2002. He interned in Medicine and did his residency in Neurology at Strong Hospital, before joining the faculty at the University of Rochester. Dr. Halterman is board certified in Neurology and remains active on the inpatient services at both Strong Memorial Hospital and Rochester General Hospital.


Dr. Halterman's laboratory studies the damage associated with global brain ischemia, with a particular focus on identifying novel therapeutic targets in transcriptional signaling networks. Using a variety of models, they study the effects of hypoxia-ischemia on both the adult nervous system as well as the progenitor cells active within the immature and adult brain. His laboratory is supported by grants from the NIH/NINDS. He also has extensive experience in the field of gene therapy and holds several patents in the areas of gene transfer, drug discovery and medical informatics.
