About Me

I am a neurologist with subspecialty training in multiple sclerosis and related neuro-immunological disorders of the central nervous system. I chose this specialization because MS affects everyone differently and changes with age. It’s a privilege to use my skills to help improve my patients’ lives.

In my practice, I enjoy getting to know each patient. I’m passionate about finding the best treatment strategies possible depending on each patient’s unique needs and disease characteristics.

My research is focused on aging and MS, specifically how clinical and molecular changes related to aging affect disease progression. The goal of my research is to use evidence-based treatment strategies, incorporated with an individual’s aging biology, to improve care for people with MS and optimize their quality of life.

I enjoy spending my free time with my family and building custom Lego creations.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 09/30/2022, Dr. Zhang has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
