Talking with Pioneer Dr. Ira Black About Parkinsonís Disease
By Joan Baum

Itís hard to believe that this internationally known clinical neurologist and neuroscientist, at the cutting edge of research, wasnít thinking of medicine when he was in college. Although he was graduated from the Bronx High School of Science, he went on to Columbia University where he got a B.A. in philosophy. Somewhere along the way, however, and certainly by the time he entered Harvard Medical School, he had become ďmore interested in the organ that philosophizes than in philosophy.Ē And so began the career of one of the most distinguished research scientists in the country. For the past 10 years Dr. Ira Black has been professor and chairman of the Department of Neuroscience and Cell Biology at the UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Director of the Joint Graduate Program in Physiology and Neurobiology there and at Rutgers, and is past president of the Society for Neuroscience of North America. A descriptive listing of agency, society, committee, and board affiliations; of publications, including major texts; of patents granted and pending; of peer-journal editorial positions; and of visiting professorships at major universities would consume this entire newspaper. Itís said that he may be the most significant researcher working on Parkin-sonís Disease of approved drug and surgical therapies.
