Associate Professor of Neurology (in the Taub Institute and the Sergievsky Center) at the CUIMC

Dr. Noble completed his undergraduate studies in math and chemistry at Vanderbilt University, followed by medical school at Emory University. His graduate medical training included internal medicine internship, neurology residency including chief resident in neurology, and neuroepidemiology and behavioral neurology fellowship, all at Columbia University Medical Center. Accordingly, he is board certified in neurology, behavioral neurology & neuropsychiatry, and public health.

Dr. Noble primarily sees patients with dementia but also leads Team Concussion, focusing on sports-related concussion care, and sees patients in a general neurology practice. Dr. Noble is fluent in Spanish and his comprehensive approach to care views the patient within the entire family dynamic, with particular focus on disadvantaged communities.

His professional leadership has been recognized by the American Academy of Neurology, which has selected him to the Emerging Leaders Forum. Dr. Noble is recognized as a leader in neurologic education at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, as its clerkship director and a scholar in the Virginia Apgar Teaching Academy. Dr. Noble is also the president of Arts & Minds, a non-profit organization promoting well-being for dementia patients and their caregivers via art-centered experiences.

In addition to patient care, Dr. Noble's research interests include health literacy, systemic inflammatory markers as contributors to stroke and dementia health disparities, the role of cognitively stimulating activities in dementia care, and sports-related concussion.
