About Zoltan Antal MD

Dr. Zoltan Antal is the Chief of Pediatric Endocrinology at Weill Cornell Medicine and directs the Pediatric Diabetes Program in the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology. He is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine and an Assistant Attending Pediatrician at NewYork-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health at Weill Cornell Medical Center. Dr. Antal is board certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Endocrinology.   Dr. Antal received a B.S. in Biology from Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, New York and completed his medical degree (M.D.) from St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada, West Indies in combination with clinical rotations at Jamaica Hospital in Queens, New York City. He went on to complete his Residency in Pediatrics in Brooklyn, New York at SUNY Downstate Medical Center and Kings County Hospital, where he later served as chief resident. After residency, he remained in New York City and completed a fellowship in Pediatric Endocrinology at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore in the Bronx.   During his fellowship, Dr. Antal also conducted research at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the immunology of diabetes. Specifically, he isolated islet cells from pancreata of diabetic mice and studied the targets of the islet infiltrating T cells. In addition, he was also in charge of the translational component of the research, which entailed examining the peripheral blood of children newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, searching for reactivity to the human counterparts of the murine T cell targets.   Finally, Dr. Antal and his colleagues analyzed the HLA supertypes of a subset of diabetic children, publishing the findings in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences in 2008.
