Lawrence I. Golbe, MD
I’m Emeritus Professor of Neurology at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, NJ, having retired in July 2020. I majored in evolutionary biology at Brown University and graduated from New York University School of Medicine. I did a couple of years of internal medicine residency at Hahnemann Hospital in Philadelphia before transferring into a neurology residency at NYU-Bellevue Hospital. I completed that training in 1983 and have worked at my present institution ever since. I was at Acting Chairman of my department for a stretch and most recently was director of the department’s Division of Movement Disorders. My research is mostly on the epidemiology, clinical genetics and clinimetrics of PSP and other parkinsonian disorders. You can see my publications here. I published my first paper on PSP in 1987 and in early 2019, my book, “A Clinician’s Guide to Progressive Supranuclear Palsy,” was published by Rutgers University Press. A major commitment is my volunteer work with CurePSP as its clinical affairs director, Scientific Advisory Board chairman and Board of Directors member. In my spare time, I try to keep my garden and my knowledge of Italian in shape, I’m co-president of the Dwight Morrow High School (Englewood, NJ) Alumni Educational Alliance (an educational charity) and much to my wife’s delight, I’ve finally learned to cook.
