Joseph Broderick, MD, has been named Director of the University of Cincinnati Neuroscience Institute (UCNI) effective Jan. 1, 2014.

Dr. Broderick, who has served as UCNI research director, will assume the new position as John M. Tew, MD, who has served as Clinical Director, steps into new roles at the UC College of Medicine and UC Health following 15 years of leadership.

As part of his new role, Dr. Broderick will end his 13-year tenure as Albert Barnes Voorheis Chair of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine on Dec. 31. Brett Kissela, MD, will become chair of the department Jan. 1.

UCNI, established in 1998, has focused on multi-disciplinary and multi-departmental care of patients with neurologic and psychiatric disorders, research to advance the understanding and treatment of these diseases and educating patients, their families and the medical community.

Aided by community and institutional support, UCNI has substantially increased its faculty and impact with nine disease-specific centers and noted programs, such as neurocritical care, spanning several of the centers.

Dr. Tew co-founded UCNI with Robert Lukin, MD, and Fred Samaha, MD. A professor of neurosurgery, radiology and surgery—and for 20 years, chair of the Department of Neurosurgery—Dr. Tew pioneered work in the areas of microsurgery, lasers, image-guided surgery, trigeminal neuralgia and brain tumor treatments.

Assisting Dr. Broderick in the leadership of UCNI will be Anya Sanchez, MD, MBA, who will continue as Administrative Director, a position she has held for the past four years. Mario Zuccarello, MD, Frank H. Mayfield Endowed Chair for Neurological Surgery and Chair of the UC Department of Neurosurgery, will lead the stakeholder’s advisory group for UCNI.

The administrative team will continue focusing on innovative patient-centered care of neurologic and psychiatric patients across UC Health, strengthening current centers and growing new centers and programs, and expanding the institute’s research and educational missions.
