Dr. Andreas Horn

Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin

Dr. Andreas Horn focuses on using brain circuit imaging to understand and improve deep brain stimulation therapy for patients with neurological diseases. Dr. Horn received an M.D. from Albert-Ludwigs University in Freiburg, Germany, and a Ph.D. in medical neurosciences from Charité in Berlin. He completed post-doctoral fellowships in medical neuroimaging at the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Development and Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience in Berlin, Germany, and at the Laboratory for Brain Network Imaging and Modulation at Harvard Medical School. He founded the Network Stimulation Laboratory at Charité – University Medicine Berlin in 2017 and is currently joining the Brigham and Women’s Center for Brain Circuit Therapeutics at Harvard Medical School in Boston. He is an expert in structural imaging (MRI/CT) and noninvasive connectivity measures derived from functional and diffusion weighted MRI. He developed methods to identify the structural and functional brain networks that mediate brain stimulation effects. He has received multiple awards including the Robert Koch Prize, the Max Rubner Prize for Innovation, and an Academic Ventures Grant from the Harvard Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies.
