Significant Professional or Academic Accomplishments: Mr. Lorenz Neuwirth began his academic career as a 7th grader in the College of Staten Island STEP program and now is our STEP alum. Since then Lorenz's interest within in behavioral and physical sciences lead him to pursue a bachelor's of Arts degree in psychology, a graduate certification in disability studies, a Master's of Science degree in neuroscience, and a Master's of Philosophy in Biology. Currently, he is near completion of his PhD in neuroscience in which he will be defending between June and August 2013.
