Rear Admiral Murray Goldstein DO, MPH, FAAN, FAOCOPM, USPHS(ret.) is an osteopathic physician with postdoctoral clinical training in internal medicine and neurology and research training in epidemiology and clinical research. RDML Murray Goldstein was the first DO to reach flag rank, serving as the Assistant Surgeon General of the US Public Health Service. At the National Institutes of Health for 40 years, he served for 11 years as the Director for the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke, the federal government’s focal point for brain research. In 1975, while at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, he organized the first NIH Research Symposium on the Research Status of Spinal Manipulative Therapy. Following this in-depth analysis of what was known at that time about spinal manipulative therapy and the principles on which it was founded, recommendations were made about additional areas of research to targeted additional attention and priorities were established for research training opportunities in chiropractic and osteopathic professional schools. Thus, a stage was set for the further study of the broad area of manipulative (manual) therapy as an interdisciplinary and inter-professional collaborative research endeavor. Dr. Goldstein served as the Medical Director for the United Cerebral Palsy Research and Educational Foundation in Washington, DC. He is a world-renowned authority on neurological disease.  Recently he retired from the American Osteopathic Board of Preventive Medicine, on which he served for many years. Dr. Goldstein also serves on the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine Education and Training Review Committee (2007-2011) and the Advisory Board of the National Headache Foundation
