Yale Medicine Magazine, 1998 - Fall


Stephen G. Waxman, M.D., Ph.D., professor of neurology and pharmacology and chair of the Department of Neurology, was elected a member of the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering (CASE) on the basis of his internationally recognized research. He is an authority in the molecular architecture of nerve fibers and the glial cells that surround them, and the mechanisms by which nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord adapt to injury. CASE is a private, nonprofit public-service institution chartered by the Connecticut General Assembly in 1976 and patterned after the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Waxman also serves as director of the PVA/EPVA Neuroscience Research Center in the VA Connecticut Healthcare System in West Haven.
