Solomon L. Moshé, M.D., is the Charles Frost Chair in Neurosurgery and Neurology, and Professor of Neurology, Neuroscience, and Pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, New York. He is also the Vice Chair of the Saul R. Korey Department of Neurology, Director of the Isabelle Rapin Child Neurology Division and Director of Clinical Neurophysiology.
Since 1979 his research has focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying age and sex-related differences in epilepsy in humans and animal models. The main goals are to develop individualized treatments today and to prevent and cure epilepsy tomorrow. In 2016, he and 6 other principal investigators were awarded a $21.7 Million Center Without Walls grant on interdisciplinary research aimed at accelerating the development of disease modifying or prevention therapies for epilepsy following traumatic brain injuries, titled the Epilepsy Bioinformatics Study for Antiepileptogenic Therapy (EpiBioS4Rx) study. His laboratory has also developed and patented a novel model of human infantile spasms that can be used to identify novel treatments of this devastating condition. In addition to his laboratory research, he is actively involved in several large multicenter studies examining the consequences of prolonged febrile seizures.
He has served as President of the International League Against Epilepsy (2009-2011), the American Epilepsy Society (2000-2001), the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (1996-1997) and the Eastern Association of EEGers (1992-1994). He is the recipient of several honors and awards, including the Teacher-Investigator Development Award from NINDS; the 1995 Jacob Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award from NINDS; the 1984 Michael Prize for Achievements in Epilepsy Research; the 1990 American Epilepsy Society Research Award; the 1999 Ambassador for Epilepsy Award from the International League Against Epilepsy; the 2005 Gloor Award from the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society; the 2007 J.E. Purkyne Honorary Medal in Biomedical Research by the Czech Academy of Sciences; the 2008 Mentor of the Year Award from Albert Einstein College of Medicine; the 2010 Global and Awareness Award from CURE, Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy; the First 2012 Saul R. Korey Award in Translational Science and Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the 2017 Bernard Sachs Award from the Child Neurology Society and Foreign member of the Russian Academy of Science.
