Congratulations Dr. Jeffrey Bruce on winning this year’s Distinguished Alumni Award from Rutgers University!

Of course, we are not surprised. Dr. Bruce is one of the foremost experts on complex tumors of the brain and skull base. His research into the treatment of brain tumors using immunotherapy and drug delivery systems has received world-wide attention, and he is routinely asked to speak across the country and internationally.

Dr. Bruce was given with the Distinguished Alumni Award in recognition of his career achievements in surgical innovation, patient care, research, and education. He was presented with a beautiful crystal plate inscribed with the honor at the recent Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School 2014 Scholarship Gala in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

That evening, Rutgers also announced the establishment of the Jeffrey N. Bruce MD Endowed Scholarship in Neurosurgery to benefit a deserving Rutgers student. The scholarship was made possible by a generous gift from Dr. Bruce.

The gala was attended by more than 250 alumni, faculty, staff, students, and friends and they raised more than $135,000. Watch Dr. Bruce, among other honorees, talk about his time at Robert Wood Johnson Medical school in this video here.


Dr. Bruce is the Edgar M. Housepian Professor of Neurological Surgery, Vice Chairman of Academic Affairs, Director of the Gabriele Bartoli Brain Tumor Laboratory, and Co-Director of the Brain Tumor Center at Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital.
