    Dr. Burt Feuerstein grew up in Buffalo, NY, and graduated from Wesleyan University with a BA in music (1972), and from the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Dentistry/Roswell Park Cancer Institute with an MD and PhD in pharmacology (1979). He completed his residency in
    Pediatrics and fellowship in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the University of California San Francisco, was professor of Lab Medicine and Neurological Surgery at UCSF, and is emeritus since 2006. Burt moved to Barrow Neurological Institute in 2006, and joined the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix in 2010. He is Professor of Child Health and Neurology, and retired in 2018. His present academic interests include drug development, brain tumor diagnosis and therapy, medical ethics in human research, and mentoring.
