Neurology in the Media

The Wall Street Journal highlights groundbreaking research by Steven Walkley, D.V.M., Ph.D., that has led to treatment options for the rare condition Niemann-Pick Type C. In a lengthy cover story covering at least six years of reporting, journalist Amy Marcus details the passion that drove Walkley to continue his research on the drug cyclodextrin – and explores how parents and scientists have joined forces to find more effective treatments.

Several Einstein faculty members and their research are featured in a National Geographic cover story on the potential genetic roots of longevity.  Harry Ostrer, M.D., Roee Holtzer, Ph.D., and Nir Barzilai, M.D., are quoted, providing insight into the some likely genetic factors of healthy aging and the varied physiological and behavioral outcomes of these factors. Ongoing epigenetic investigations by Francine Einstein, M.D. and John Greally, M.B.B.Ch, Ph.D., are also highlighted, as is Dr. Holtzer’s collaborator Joe Verghese, M.B.B.S. (Thursday, Apr 18, 2013)
