John J. Foxe, PhD, a leading neuroscientist, has been named the first research director of the Children's Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (CERC) at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. Dr. Foxe, who also will serve as professor of pediatrics and of neuroscience at Einstein, assumed the newly created position January 1, 2010.

One of the largest centers of its kind in the United States, CERC staff members evaluate, diagnose, and treat children and adolescents who have developmental disorders such as autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), cerebral palsy, and hearing impairments. Dr. Foxe will focus particular attention on childhood schizophrenia and autism.

"John Foxe is a brilliant researcher who embraces CERC's mission to help children with disabilities reach their full potential and provides support to their families," says Robert Marion, MD, director of CERC and the Ruth L. Gottesman Chair in Developmental Pediatrics. "His intelligence and dedication will bring the knowledge and direction we need to bolster our clinical research efforts and extend our impact."
