Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Nancy Kuntz is a child neurologist with additional board certifications in Pediatrics, Electrodiagnostic Medicine and Autonomic Medicine. Dr. Kuntz joined the Departments of Pediatrics and Neurology at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine in December 2009 and is Medical Director of the Mazza Foundation Neuromuscular Disorders Program, the PPMD Duchenne Care Center and the MDA Care Center at Lurie Children’s. Before relocating to Chicago, Dr. Kuntz was part of the Department of Neurology at Mayo Clinic Rochester where she did her training in child neurology and clinical electromyography and developed experience treating neuromuscular disorders in children. Dr. Kuntz is interested in the development of less invasive methods of neuromuscular diagnosis in children and serves as site Principal Investigator in a number of clinical treatment trials for neuromuscular disorders in children.

Clinical evaluation methodology and clinical treatment trials of disorders of the motor unit are my primary areas of interest. These include disorders of peripheral nerve, neuromuscular junction and muscle. Characterization of autonomic nervous system in children and adolescents is an integral part of this effort.

Treatment of neuromuscular and autonomic disorders in infants, children and adolescents. Support of comprehensive, multidisciplinary, family-centered care. Continued development of understanding of neuroimmunologic contribution to these clinical disorders.
