News & Announcements

There are 443 new medical and science leaders in the world today after Drexel University College of Medicine's annual commencement. Despite the heavy rain, the ceremony at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts went off without a hitch. Prominent endocrinologist and former dean of the University of Pennsylvania Medical School Arthur Rubenstein, MBBCh, and noted medical philanthropist Deeda Blair, each received honorary degrees.


New research from Drexel University College of Medicine finds young people who misuse or take illegal stimulants – known as "smart drugs" – risk long-term impairments to brain function. It is estimated that more than one million American students misuse smart drugs to increase their attention span, memory and capacity to stay awake, but investigators from Drexel's Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, along with researchers from the University of Delaware, found that any short-term boost in mental performance due to smart drugs may come at a heavy cost: long-term decrease in brain plasticity, which is necessary for task switching, planning ahead and adaptive flexibility in behavior.


Drexel University College of Medicine's Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Professional Studies recently recognized faculty excellence with its inaugural Teaching and Mentoring Awards. Faculty members were selected by fellow faculty, staff and students to receive these honors.


Philadelphia magazine has published its annual list of the region's "Top Doctors" in various specialties. The list can be found in the May issue of the magazine on newsstands now.
