Todd Goldstein

Zucker School of Medicine alumnus, Todd Goldstein, PhD '16 is on the front line of medical research in the use of 3-D printing for organ and tissue repair and replacement. His early research as a student led to the first 3-D printed, amphibious prosthetic leg that gives amputees the ability to enter and exit water without changing prosthetics.


Zucker School of Medicine research program offerings range from singular touch points, such as summer research experiences between the first and second years of training and research blocks in the fourth year, to independent studies in which students take time off to conduct deeper, more sustained research. Students also have the opportunity to take on longitudinal projects they can begin during their summer research experience and revist during selective and elective time in later years.
