Emmanuel H. During, MD
Clinical Associate Professor
Neurology & Neurological Sciences

Emmanuel During, M.D. is a neurologist and psychiatrist specialized in sleep medicine. He completed psychiatry residency in Paris, France, after which he relocated to the US to conduct neuroimaging research at N.Y.U., New York, with Drs. Osorio and De Leon. He then completed neurology residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, followed by a sleep medicine fellowship at Stanford University, where he joined the faculty as assistant professor with a dual appointment in Neurology and Sleep Medicine.

He directs the Stanford Parasomnia Clinic and founded the Sleep-related Movement Disorder Clinic. Additionally, he evaluates patients with a wide range of sleep and neurological complaints. Given his unique training and expertise, he has been receiving an increasing number of referrals for the evaluation of patients with complex neuropsychiatric and sleep disorders. He is particularly committed to teaching trainees at bedside and is actively involved in the core sleep fellowship and neurology residency curriculae.

Aside from his clinical work, he conducts several research studies as P.I. or co-investigator characterizing the natural history of idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder, the role of microbiome in restless leg syndrome and its relation with iron metabolism, or the role of an immuno-modulating drug on sleep architecture and quality. His most recent interest pertains to home devices that can enhance slow wave sleep (SWS) via auditory closed-loop stimulation. He is interested in studying the effect of SWS enhancement on sleep quality, cognition and biological markers related to Alzheimer's pathology.

Dr. McIntire’s interests are in general/comprehensive neurology. He is also interested in medical education and the training of medical students and neurology residents.


Rebecca Miller-Kuhlmann, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor
Neurology & Neurological Sciences

Rebecca Miller-Kuhlmann, MD is board certified in Neurology and in Electrodiagnostic Medicine and practices as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurology & Neurological Sciences. She earned her MD from UCSF School of Medicine and residency and fellowship training at Stanford University. Her fellowship training in Comprehensive Clinical Neurology had primary foci in movement disorders, memory/cognitive disorders, neuromuscular medicine/EMG/NCS studies, and therapeutic applications of botulinum toxin with supplementary training in multiple sclerosis/neuroimmunology, epilepsy, and headache medicine. Her clinical focus is diagnosis and treatment of neurologic conditions with committment to maintaining a wide-breadth of knowledge in order to best treat complex patients with multiple neurologic conditions.

As a former public school teacher, she is also passionate about medical education. She completed a health professions education pathway during medical school and earned an honors certificate in medical education from Stanford during her residency training, during which time she also served as an education chief resident for her program. She continues to deeply enjoy working with medical students and residents in the clinic as well as the classroom. She associate-directs the Neurology Block for second year medical students and in 2020 has had the privilege to begin directing the Science of Medicine course which comprises ~40% of the preclinical curriculum. She is also a graduate of the Stanford Clinical Effectiveness Leadership Program which develops skills in quality improvement and change management. She enjoys teaching and fostering quality improvement work as well as associate directing a novel communication coaching program within the Stanford Neurology Residency.
