Department / Division Affiliations
Dr. Bordelon received her MD and PhD degrees from the University of Pennsylvania. Her thesis
work was performed with Dr. Marie-Francoise Chesselet and involved investigating mechanisms of
cell death in an animal model of Huntington disease. She went on to residency training at
Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women???s Hospitals and then did a Movement
Disorders Fellowship at Columbia University before joining the Neurology faculty at UCLA in 2004.
Her clinical work involves the diagnosis and treatment of Movement Disorders and her clinical
research interests include clinical trials and development of biomarkers of disease in this
