Solomon L. Moshé, MD, is Vice Chair of Neurology, Director of the Isabelle Rapin Child Neurology Division and Director of Clinical Neurophysiology at Montefiore. He is also the Charles Frost Chair in Neurosurgery and Neurology, Vice Chair, Saul R. Korey Department of Neurology, and Professor of Neurology, Neuroscience and Pediatrics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Einstein). Dr. Moshé’s clinical focus is on epilepsy and electroencephalography with special emphasis on age-related influences on the expression, control and consequences of seizures.
After receiving his Doctor of Medicine from the National University of Athens School of Medicine in Greece in 1972, Dr. Moshé began his post-doctoral training at the University Hospital of Maryland. He completed his internship and residency there in pediatrics in 1975. Following this, he pursued a pediatric neurology fellowship at Einstein from 1975 to 1978. He was a visiting epilepsy research fellow at the University of California Los Angeles in 1978, then completed a neurology and neuroscience research fellowship at Einstein in 1979. He was a guest scholar with the EEG department at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center from 1980 to 198, and with the seizure unit at Children’s Hospital in Boston in 1980.
Dr. Moshé’s research focuses on understanding the mechanisms underlying age and sex-related differences in epilepsy in humans and animal models. His laboratory has developed and patented a novel model of human infantile spasms that can be used to identify novel treatments of this devastating condition. He also investigates the consequences of prolonged seizures and methods to accelerate the development of disease modifying or prevention therapies for post-traumatic epilepsy. His extensive body of work has been shared nationally and internationally through peer-reviewed publications, lectures and conferences. He is a member on several editorial boards including Neurobiology of Disease, Pediatric Neurology, Epileptic Disorders, and the Journal of Neurology & Psychology.
Dr. Moshé has been recognized with numerous national and international honors and awards, including a 1995 Jacob Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award from the National Institute of Health, the first 2012 Saul R. Korey Award in Translational Science and Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine; the 2017 Bernard Sachs Award from the Child Neurology Society, and election as a foreign member of the Russian Academy of Science in 2017. He is a member of many professional societies including the American Academy of Neurology, the Child Neurology Society, the American Epilepsy Society and the American Association for Advancement of Science.
