Senior inductees of the Class of 2019 are: Michelle Baker, Patrick Curtin, Brian Cuzz, Lisa Ditchek, Joshua Drake, Alexander Fein, Alexandra France, Eric Gershon, Alec Jacobson, Melissa Mahajan, Scott Minchenberg, Natalie Wagaman.
The Department of Neurology has been selected to participate for another five-year term in the prestigious NIH funded NeuroNEXT research consortium. The selection was based on excellent performance in terms of patient enrollment and data quality in clinical trials sponsored by the network. The NeuroNEXT network provides a platform for design and implementation of clinical trials exploring novel diagnostic and therapeutic avenues for patients suffering from neurological diseases. Upstate participates in the network as part of the SUNY hub with the Neurology departments of SUNY Buffalo, Downstate and Stony Brook.
