She has completed a neurology residency at Case Western Reserve University and Neuroimmunology Fellowships at the University of Michigan and Baylor College of Medicine. She is the Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Center at Wayne State School of Medicine and an Associate Professor of Neurology.

Her clinical research focuses on aggressive forms of MS, new immunomodulatory therapies and symptomatic interventions. Dr. Bernitsas directs a very active clinical research program and she is the PI on numerous clinical and investigator-initiated trials.

Her laboratory research interests include novel neuroimaging and optical coherence tomography that lead to a better understanding of the disease, pathophysiology and imaging of MS fatigue and the use of biomarkers in neuroprotection and remyelination. Currently, she serves as the Editor-in Chief in the Neuroimaging section of the “Brain Sciences” Journal. She has published extensively and served in several committees and advisory boards.
