Dr. Dubey studies central and peripheral autoimmune neurological conditions. This includes searching for novel biomarkers in serum and cerebrospinal fluids of patients with autoimmune and paraneoplastic neurological syndromes. Dr. Dubey's research also focuses on analyzing clinical and radiological features of autoimmune neurological disorders which can aid in early diagnosis and guide treatment.

Focus areas

  • Autoantibody biomarkers: Dr. Dubey's laboratory research focuses on identifying novel autoantibodies for diagnosis of autoimmune or paraneoplastic neurological syndromes. He also evaluates the clinical and onclological associations of previously described neural specific antibodies.
  • Epidemiology: Dr. Dubey is working to establish accurate incidence and prevalence of autoimmune or paraneoplastic neurological disorders through population-based studies.
  • Autoimmune Epilepsy: Dr. Dubey has continued to work in evaluating the role of autoimmunity among patients with epilepsy of unknown etiology. He has also contributed in creating and validating predictive models for diagnosis and management of autoimmune epilepsy.
  • Paraneoplastic neuropathies: An additional area of focus is studying and describing clinical and electrodiagnostic phenotypes of paraneoplastic neuropathies.

Significance to patient care

The goal of Dr. Dubey's research is improve in diagnostics and treatment strategies for patients with autoimmune disorders affecting central and/or peripheral nervous system.
