Margaret Ann McNeill Goldstein, Professor at the Baylor College of Medicine, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in medical education.
At an early age, Dr. Goldstein originally intended to become an opera star. She was already an accomplished singer taking coursework when she took a job in college in a laboratory that changed her trajectory. The job connected her to her future husband Alexander, a Harvard graduate in his first year of medical school. Upon learning from him, she found a job in the medical career would be exciting and interesting and decided to pursue it instead. Dr. Goldstein graduated magna cum laude from Rice University with a Bachelor of Arts in 1965 and with a PhD in 1969. While matriculating at the institution, she served as a laboratory instructor in biology.
After earning a PhD, Dr. Goldstein worked briefly as an instructor in biology at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center before joining the faculty at Baylor College of Medicine. Throughout the years, she worked as an assistant professor of biology, medicine and cell biology, and as an associate professor of medicine and molecular and cellular biology before becoming a professor in 1989. In 2004, Dr. Goldstein was made a professor emeritus at the institution. In addition to these roles, Dr. Goldstein has served as a visiting fellow at the University of Cambridge and served in different roles for the National Research Council, the American Heart Association, Inc., the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Microscopy Society of America. Dr. Goldstein is also a fellow of the Microscopy Society of America.
Dr. Goldstein has received a number of accolades for her work. In 2002, she was the recipient of the Women on the Move Award. From 1974 to 1998, she was a grantee of the National Institutes of Health. In addition, NASA presented her the Achievement Award for Cosmos 2G in 1994 and the Achievement Award for Cosmos 2044 in 1991. In 1990, she received the Outstanding Houston Woman in Science and Technology Award from the Young Women’s Christian Association and the Order of Silver Thistle of the Scottish Heritage Foundation.
