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 grew up in New Jersey, majored in evolutionary biology at Brown University, graduated from New York University School of Medicine and did a neurology residency at NYU-Bellevue Hospital. I completed that training in 1983 and have worked at my present institution until retirement. I was Acting Chairman of my department for a stretch and most recently was director of the department’s Division of Movement Disorders. My recent research has been mostly on the epidemiology, clinical genetics and clinimetrics of PSP and other parkinsonian disorders but previously was mostly on the clinical genetics and epidemiology of Parkinson’s disease. 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. I served as CurePSP’s scientific director from 1990 to 2016.
Nowadays, I volunteer for CurePSP as its Chief Clinical Officer, Scientific Advisory Board chairman and Board of Directors member; I still do a little of my own research and review manuscripts for research journals; I work on my Italian and my garden; 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. And I have a blog on PSP.
