Biography:

Steven M. Greenberg MD, PhD, is the director of the Hemorrhagic Stroke Research Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Professor of Neurology at the Harvard Medical School. Initiated in 1994, the Hemorrhagic Stroke Research Program has become internationally recognized as a leading authority on the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of cerebral amyloid angiopathy. Dr. Greenberg has authored over 82 research articles and over 35 chapters, reviews, and editorials, served as Principal Investigator on multiple national research grants and in leadership positions at national and international conferences on hemorrhagic stroke and vascular cognitive impairment.

Dr. Greenberg received his undergraduate degree in biochemistry from Harvard University and his MD/PhD degrees from Columbia University under the graduate research training of Dr. James H. Schwartz.  He served his internship at the Pennsylvania Hospital, did his neurology residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and finished his post-doctoral fellowship at the Brigham and Women's Hospital's Center for Neurologic Diseases.
