Dr. DeLuca Comments on Neuroimaging Center Opening in The Star-Ledger
John DeLuca, PhD, vice president for Research and Training, explained the importance of the Neuroimaging Center at Kessler Foundation in an article in The Star-Ledger, titled, “Kessler opens $6 million research center in West Orange, one of a kind in U.S.,” by Dan Goldberg.
