Samuel M. Goldman, MD, MPH

Professor of Medicine and Neurology at University of California, San Francisco

Location: San Francisco, CA United States

Dr. Goldman is a professor at the University of California, San Francisco in the Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and the Department of Neurology. He also practices environmental medicine in the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Health Care System.

Dr. Goldman has published extensively on the epidemiology of Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases, with a focus on elucidating potentially modifiable environmental risk factors (e.g., pesticides, solvents, smoking, and traumatic brain injury) and on the interaction of these risk factors with genetic susceptibility. His recent work has focused on identifying and characterizing clinical features of very early prodromal (before the onset of symptoms) Parkinson's disease  –  an essential step to advance the development of future disease-modifying therapeutic interventions.

Dr. Goldman attended medical school at the University of Texas, Houston, and trained in preventive medicine at the University of California, Berkeley, where he also obtained his MPH in environmental health science.
