Background

Dr. Ahmet Hoke focuses on neuromuscular diseases with a particular interest in peripheral nerve diseases. He has specialized expertise in nerve conduction studies, electromyography and nerve and muscle biopsy reading. In 2005, he received the coveted Derek Denny Brown Young Neurological Scholar Award given by the American Neurological Association to a member of the association who has achieved a significant stature in neurological research and whose promise of continuing major contributions to the field of neurology is anticipated.

In 2018, Dr. Hoke received the Wolfe Neuropathy Research Prize for the preclinical development of the drug ethoxyquin (EQ-6) for neuroprotection against chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. The prize was given by the American Neurological Association.

Dr. Ahmet Hoke received his medical degree from Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey. He then completed an internship and residency in medicine at MetroHealth Saint Lukes Medical Center in Cleveland, OH. He completed his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at Case Western Reserve University before joining The Johns Hopkins for his neurology residency. He went on to the University of Calgary for a neuromuscular fellowship.

Research & Publications

Research Summary

Dr. Hoke's research interest includes studies on basic biology of peripheral axons and Schwann cells and disorders affecting the peripheral nervous system. He uses in vitro and in vivo models of peripheral neuropathies (HIV-associated sensory neuropathies and toxic neuropathies) to study the mechanism of axonal damage and develop therapeutic targets for drug development. In addition, he has other ongoing research focusing on mechanisms of axonal degeneration and regeneration using in vitro and in vivo models.
