Dr. William Bauer, M.D., Ph.D.


Clinical Professor
Community Based Faculty

1958: B.Sc., Natural Science and Philosophy, John Carroll University
1965: M.D., (M.B., B. Ch., B.A.O.) (Honors Degree), National University of Ireland, University College of Dublin
2005: Ph.D., Neuroscience (Neuropathic Pain), University of Toledo (Medical University of Ohio)

Research Interests:
My main research interests focus on basic mechanisms of pain involving the trigeminal system, migraine including functional and structural imaging of pain. I am also interested in new drugs relating to Alzheimer's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Low Back Pain and Traumatic Brain Injury.

Teaching Responsibilities:
My original faculty appointment at the University of Toledo (then MCO) was in 1984. Since then I have been involved in the residency and training programs in Neuroscience, Neurology/AHEC (Area Health Education Center) and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. I have given —450 lectures in the areas of clinical neurology, research, basic science and electrodiagnostics to students, residents, nurses at Univ. of Toledo and the four county hospitals in Northwest Ohio from 1984-2008. These areas include:

Symptoms of Neurological Disorders
Infections of the Nervous System
Cerebrovascular Diseases
Disorders of Cerebrospinal Fluid
Brain Tumors
Cranio-cerebrospinal Trauma
Developmental Disorders Genetic Diseases
Cerebral Degenerations of Childhood
Neuro-cutaneous Disorders
Cranial Nerve Disorders
Peripheral nerve Disorders
Dementia/ Neurodegenerative Disorders
Ataxia/ Cerebellar Disorders
Movement Disorders
Spinal Cord Diseases
Neuromuscular Diseases
Muscle Diseases (Myopathies)
Demyelinative Diseases (Multiple Sclerosis)
Autonomic Nervous System Diseases
Intermittent & Paroxysmal Disorders (Epilepsy, Migraine and Sleep)
Systemic Diseases & Environmental Diseases

I helped develop a pain clinic and have maintained a research program in pain at the University of Toledo Ohio from 1994-2008.

My current part-time duties and functions at the University of Toledo in basic science research are involved with my Ph.D. degree and associated pain research. I am responsible for neuroscience lectures in pain and cortical dysfunction for medical students and patient clinical presentations.
