Below is the announcement from NYU's Chairman of Neurology:
It is with great excitement that we announce the appointment of Dr. Lauren B. Krupp as Director of the Department of Neurology’s Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Division, effective September 1, 2015. Dr. Krupp succeeds Dr. Joseph Herbert who led the MS division with outstanding distinction over the past two decades. Dr. Krupp is an international leader in the care of adult and pediatric patients with multiple sclerosis. She is the founding chair and member of the International Pediatric MS Study Group and the initial chair and a current member of the National Network of Pediatric MS Centers of Excellence. Dr. Krupp has published more than 120 peer reviewed publications and has held greater than 1.7 million dollars in investigator-initiated grant support. A widely acknowledged authority on symptom management and the measurement of cognitive dysfunction, Dr. Krupp’s adult and pediatric research programs have focused on better defining and treating fatigue, mood disturbance and cognitive impairment in MS. Dr. Krupp received her medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She was a neurology resident at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center and then completed fellowship training at the Neuro-immunology/Multiple Sclerosis Branch of the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Krupp will be responsible for the clinical operations of the Center and its research and education missions, including long-term strategic planning and development.
Additionally, we are very pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Leigh Charvet as Director of MS Research, effective September 1, 2015. Dr. Charvet has worked with Dr. Krupp for over 20 years and comes from a strong team of leaders in the research field of MS. She has a wealth of research expertise in the realm of cognition, fatigue, quality of life and related topics. Dr. Charvet earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the University of Michigan and went on to earn her PhD in Clinical Psychology at Vanderbilt University. She then joined a Postdoctoral Program in Clinical Neuropsychology at SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine. Her innovative research with pediatric patients makes her a valuable addition to our MS research team and we are confident that she will contribute to the expansion of the Department of Neurology’s research efforts in MS.
Drs. Krupp and Chavet are a talented and dynamic team and we are so delighted that they will be joining our department in the coming months.
