The Hostos Behavioral and Social Sciences Department continues to excel both on and off campus.

Adjunct Professor Azizi A. Seixas was recently named one of the "1,000 Inspiring Black Scientists in America.” The list was compiled by Cell Press, a blog and online resource for researchers, and showcases the contributions Black scientists make to the scientific community.

Born in Jamaica, Dr. Seixas is also biomedical researcher, health-tech innovator, and consultant to organizations that run the gamut from NBC Health News to the Department of Defense.

In addition to his duties at Hostos, Dr. Seixas teaches at New York University’s Grossman School of Medicine. He holds a Ph.D. from Fordham University, and has pursued post-graduate training at NYU’s Department of Population Health.

Congratulations to Professor Seixas for his marvelous achievements!
