Scientific Education & Advisory Board
Dr. Gabriel Haller is a geneticist at Washington University in St. Louis. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery with appointments in the Departments of Neurology and Genetics. He co-leads the Park-Reeves Chiari Genetics Consortium and works to identify genetic factors that contribute to risk of developing Chiari malformation or syringomyelia. His laboratory focuses on determining the genetic underpinnings of multiple neurological/neurosurgical disorders including Chiari I malformation, syringomyelia, pediatric hydrocephalus and subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Additionally, he focuses on understanding the functional impact protein coding genetic variation in neurological disease genes to better predict which patients are at risk for developing these disorders before they present in the clinic using genetic information alone. Dr. Haller obtained his PhD from Washington University in 2013 and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Neurology at Washington University in 2018. He has been on the faculty at Washington University since 2019.
