Rutgers' Wise Young named to Esquire's 'Best and Brightest of 2005'

NEW BRUNSWICK/PISCATAWAY, N.J. Rutgers' Wise Young, world-renowned neuroscientist and spinal cord injury researcher, has been selected by Esquire magazine as one of the "Best & Brightest 2005" and is featured in the December issue of the magazine which reaches the newsstands on Nov. 15.

Another of Esquire's picks for "Best & Brightest 2005" is acclaimed social theorist and author Richard Florida, a 1979 Rutgers College graduate. Florida is the author of two prominent books that explore the role of creativity in the workforce and take issue with America's xenophobic practices in the global community, "The Rise of the Creative Class" and "The Flight of the Creative Class." Florida is the Hirst Professor in the School of Public Policy at George Mason University and a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.

"Esquire's dual recognition does Rutgers proud," said Rutgers President Richard L. McCormick. "Wise Young is an exceptional individual, a teacher par excellence committed to training the next generation of neuroscientists, and an untiring advocate for biomedical research to 'cure the incurable.' We are pleased to count him as a member of our faculty. We are also pleased to see Rutgers College alum Richard Florida in the Esquire spotlight as well. His positions on the global competition for talent strike a responsive chord with many economists and politicians facing America's struggle to retain scientific, technological and economic leadership on the world stage."

Esquire takes five pages to tell Wise Young's story, tracing his history from mid-century Hong Kong and Japan, through Reed College, Woods Hole and New York University, to his tenure at Rutgers. The article details his accomplishments in medicine and chronicles the evolution of his unflagging dedication to curing the injured and afflicted in a manner marked by exceptional sensitivity and humanity.

Before coming to Rutgers, Young was director of neurosurgery r
