for Medical Research


David Eidelberg, MD, is Director of the Center for Neurosciences at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in Manhasset, New York. Dr. Eidelberg is internationally recognized for his pioneering work using functional imaging to identify abnormal functional brain networks in neurological disorders. His work has led to the development of novel image-based methods for the assessment of disease progression, treatment response, and to enhance the accuracy of clinical diagnosis.

Dr. Eidelberg received his MD from Harvard Medical School. After completing residency training in neurology at the Harvard-Longwood Area Training Program, he pursued postdoctoral training in brain imaging with MRI at the National Hospital, Queen Square in London UK and PET at Sloan-Kettering Institute in New York. Dr. Eidelberg moved to North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, New York in 1988 to establish the functional imaging laboratory and the clinical movement disorders program. He has led the Center for Neurosciences at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research since its founding in 2001, serving as Director and Susan and Leonard Feinstein Professor of Neurology and Neuroscience.

Dr. Eidelberg has received many grants and awards for his work from prominent research agencies including NIH and the Michael J. Fox Foundation. He is the author of over 350 peer-reviewed research articles, editorials, and reviews, as well as a textbook (Brain Imaging in Parkinson’s Disease, Oxford University Press 2011). Dr. Eidelberg serves on the editorial boards of several high-impact journals. He is a scientific advisor to the The Michael J. Fox Foundation, Parkinson Disease Foundation, and the COBRE Center for Neurodegeneration and Translational Neuroscience (CNTN).
