Faculty & Research
The Department now has over 140 faculty.This includes 87 full-time academic faculty, 37 faculty in other departments with secondary appointments in neurology, and 16 faculty at other institutions with adjunct appointments in neurology.
The Department of Neurology has a strong tradition of both basic and clinical research. Many internationally recognized clinician-researchers are members of the faculty. The Department consistently ranks as one of the top five neurology departments in the United States for extramural research funding from the National Institutes of Health.
The department has consistently ranked within the top 6 nationally in NIH research funding. Yet rather than rest on its laurels, the department is again aggressively expanding further, with an aggressive program of recruitment anticipated over the next 5 years, as part of the University of Rochester’s strategic plan for 2009-13.
