Goldstein Wins Teaching Award

Dr. David S. Goldstein, chief of the NINDS clinical neurocardiology section, recently received the 2004 Distinguished Clinical Teacher's Award for his outstanding qualities as a clinical teacher, mentor and researcher.

The award — which was established in 1985 — is the highest honor given to an NIH senior clinician, staff clinician or tenure-track/tenured clinical investigator by the NIH clinical fellows. It recognizes an individual for excellence in mentoring health care professionals and teaching on issues related to direct patient care, and for outstanding contributions to the advancement of clinical research.

Goldstein graduated from Yale College and earned his M.D.-Ph.D. in behavioral sciences from Johns Hopkins for his work on cardiovascular conditioning. He came to NIH in 1978 as a clinical associate in NHLBI and obtained tenure as a senior investigator in 1984. He joined NINDS in 1990 to head the clinical neurochemistry section. In 1999, he founded and has since directed CNS, an independent section in NINDS's Division of Intramural Research.

Goldstein is the author of The Autonomic Nervous System in Health and Disease (2001) and the NDRF Handbook for Patients with Dysautonomias (2002). His research on stress, catecholamine systems, dysautonomias and clinical neurocardiologic disorders has been published in more than 400 papers. Goldstein is the first Distinguished Clinical Teacher's Award recipient from NINDS. This year's other finalists were Drs. William Gahl (NHGRI), Elise Kohn (NCI), Ellen Leibenluft (NIMH), Calman Prussin (NIAID) and Carlos Zarate (NIMH).
