Solomon L. Moshé, MD, President of the International League against Epilepsy (ILAE), is professor of neurology, neuroscience, and pediatrics at the Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in the Bronx, New York. He is vice chairman of the department of neurology and director of child neurology and clinical neurophysiology. Since 1979, his research has focused on understanding the mechanisms underlying age- and sex-related differences in epilepsy in humans and animal models. In addition to his laboratory research he is actively involved in several large multicenter studies examining the consequences of prolonged febrile seizures and absence epilepsy. In over 20 years, Dr. Moshé has mentored over 200 scientists and clinicians from around the world in clinical epilepsy and basic science epilepsy-related research.

Dr. Moshé has served as president of the American Epilepsy Society (2000-2001), the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (1996-1997) and the Eastern Association of Electroencephalographers (1992-1994). He has been a member of the executive committee and the professional advisory board of the Epilepsy Foundation and has served as the secretary-general of the executive committee of the International League against Epilepsy from 2005-2009.

Dr. Moshé has received a number of honors and awards including a Teacher-Investigator Development Award and a Jacob Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award from the NIH, the Michael Prize for achievement in epilepsy research, the American Epilepsy Society Research Award, the Ambassador for Epilepsy Award from the International League against Epilepsy, the Gloor Award from the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society and the J.E.Purkyne Honorary Medal in Biomedical Research by the Czech Academy of Sciences. He has also received the Mentor of the Year award from his own institution and the distinguished service award from the Epilepsy Foundation of Southern New York. He is an elected member of the American Neurological Association and the American Pediatric Society. Dr. Moshé has authored or co-authored over 300 publications.
