Michael L. Lipton, M.D., Ph.D., F.A.C.R.
Dr. Lipton, a neuroradiologist and neuroscientist, is Associate Director of the Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center and Director of Radiology Research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine as well as Medical Director of MRI Services at its University Hospital, Montefiore Medical Center, both in New York. He divides his professional time between the clinical practice of neuroradiology, teaching and research. Dr. Lipton’s research broadly addresses the use of advanced noninvasive imaging technology to reveal heretofore-inaccessible substrates of brain dysfunction, particularly in the realms of behavior and cognition. More specifically, his research program has focused for nearly a decade on detecting and characterizing the effects of mild brain injury (AKA concussion). Specific areas of emphasis at present include the understanding of inter-individual differences in the manifestations of brain injury and the cumulative effects of repetitive subconcussive injury in sports. Dr. Lipton’s work on the impact of subconcussive “heading” on brain structure and function in amateur soccer players, funded by the Dana Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, has been reported extensively in the press worldwide.
