Distinguished neuroscientist and Alzheimer's researcher Dr. Steven Marc Paul will lead the new Helen & Robert Appel Institute for Alzheimer's Research at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Dr. Paul will join Weill Cornell faculty in September, with appointments in the Departments of Neurology & Neuroscience and Psychiatry. Previously, he has held senior research positions at Eli Lilly and Company and the National Institute of Mental Health.
"An enormously talented scientist and administrator, Dr. Steven Paul is uniquely qualified to lead the Appel Institute for Alzheimer's Research and propel efforts to develop new treatments for the prevention and management, and eventually defeat, of this devastating disease," says Dr. Antonio M. Gotto Jr., the Stephen and Suzanne Weiss Dean of Weill Cornell Medical College. "We are very grateful to Helen and Bob Appel for their steadfast commitment to Alzheimer's patients and their families, and to making Weill Cornell a leading center for research into Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative disorders."
