John J. Foxe, Ph.D

CNL Founder & Ongoing Collaborator

Dr. John Foxe, the Founding Director of the CNL, is a translational researcher with more than 20 year of experience studying developmental disorders such as schizophrenia and autism. The core mission of his research is to understand the underlying biological mechanisms of these diseases, with the goal of developing more effective treatments and interventions.

Before joining the faculty at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, he served for six years as the director of the Ph.D. program in Cognitive Neuroscience at The City College of New York.  He received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1999 and his M.S. in Neuroscience in 1996.

Dr. Foxe was recently appointed research director of the DelMonte Neuromedicine Institute (DNI) and the Kilian J. and Caroline F. Schmitt Chair of the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, but remains a part of the CNL team as an ongoing collaborator.
