On February 1st, Stephan Mayer, MD, FCCM was named Chair of the Department of Neurology at Henry Ford. 

Dr. Mayer has been a practicing neurologist, first at New York Presbyterian Hospital Columbia University Medical Center and then Mount Sinai. He has published over 800 journal articles, books, case reports, book chapters, and abstracts, and is considered a world leader in neurocritical care. He was principal investigator of the FAST Trial, a worldwide multicenter clinical trial evaluating ultra-early hemostatic therapy for brain hemorrhage, and served as principal investigator of the NIH-funded New York Presbyterian Hospital hub of the Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials (NETT) network.

Most recently Dr. Mayer served as one of two new co-editors for Merritt’s Textbook of Neurology, 13th Edition (Wolters Kluwer, 2016). His work in helping to organize therapeutic hypothermia for victims of cardiac arrest in New York City was recently featured in the book Cheating Death, by CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

Dr. Mayer has been honored with numerous awards during the past decade, including the Society of Critical Care Medicine Neuroscience Specialty Award. He has been named to Best Doctors in America and Best Doctors, Neurology/Neurocritical Care (New York Metro Region) annually since 2003.
