Dr. Carter is a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist (physiatrist) who co-directs the Muscular Dystrophy Association/Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Clinics at the University of Washington Medical Center. His clinical research is focused on trying to better understand the relationship between pain, physical disability, and quality of life in neuromuscular disease (NMD). This would allow for the development of better treatment protocols, ultimately improving the rehabilitation and palliative care of this patient population. His pre-clinical research involves characterizing the neuromuscular electrophysiology of genetically corrected animal models of human NMD.
