Suzanne Goh, MD is a board-certified pediatric behavioral neurologist, a neuroscience researcher, and author. She has dedicated her career to researching and developing therapies for neurological conditions that impact childhood brain development. Specializing in the treatment of autism, she is the founder of Cortica, and creator of the Cortica Care Model.
Dr. Goh was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. She pursued her undergraduate studies at Harvard University where she received her Bachelors of Arts degree, summa cum laude, in History and Science (1993-1997). She went on to attend Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar (1997-1999). In 2004, she graduated from Harvard Medical School, cum laude. Dr. Goh completed her Pediatrics Internship at Massachusetts General Hospital and her Pediatric Neurology Residency at University of California San Francisco.
Dr. Goh completed a postdoctoral Autism Research Fellowship in the Pediatric Brain Imaging Laboratory at Columbia University. She went on to serve as a member of the faculty at Columbia University, as Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurology, with joint appointments in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neurology.
Dr. Goh’s research has focused on mitochondrial and other metabolic features in autism. Through brain imaging studies (Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy), she has identified unique aspects of neural circuitry and brain chemistry in autism. Her research has led to publications in leading neuroscience journals, including Neurology, Annals of Neurology, Pediatric Neurology, & Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology.
