Steven Goldman, professor of neurology, has been reappointed as codirector of the Center for Translational Neuromedicine  and as the Dean Zutes Chair in Biology of the Aging Brain—both through June 30, 2020. Goldman also retains his joint appointments as professor of neurosurgery and as Distinguished Professor in Neurosciences.

Goldman is interested in cell genesis and neural regeneration in the adult brain. His lab focuses on the use of stem and progenitor cells for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders such as Huntington’s Disease, as well as for the treatment of glial diseases such as the pediatric leukodystrophies and multiple sclerosis. He has published more than 250 papers in his field—more than 100 as first or senior author—as well as 20 issued patents with more pending.

His lengthy list of awards and honors includes the Novo Nordisk Foundation Laureate Award, the Jacob Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as election to Academia Europaea (the European Academy of Sciences), the Association of American Physicians, and the American Society for Clinical Investigation. He is also a fellow of the American Neurological Association.

Goldman has served on the NIH Board of Scientific Counselors, has chaired a number of committees of the NIH, and recently completed a four-year term as a voting member of the FDA Cellular, Tissue, and Gene Therapy Advisory Committee. He is as a past chair of the Department of Neurology, and has a joint appointment with the University of Copenhagen Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences—where he serves as codirector with Maiken Nedergaard, the Frank P. Smith Professor of Neurosurgery at Rochester, of its Center for Basic and Translational Neuroscience.

Goldman came to Rochester in 2003 from Weill Medical College at Cornell University. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, he obtained his PhD at the Rockefeller University in 1983, his MD from Cornell in 1984, and subsequently did his neurology residency at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
