Elizabeth F. Neufeld (born 1928) is an American geneticist whose research has focussed on the genetic basis of metabolic disease in humans.

Neufield and her Russian Jewish family emigrated to the United States from Paris in 1940; they had left Europe as refugees to escape Nazi persecution. [Hirschhorn, K. 1983. The William Allan Memorial Award. Presented to Elizabeth F. Neufeld, Ph. D., at the annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics Detroit, September 29-October 2, 1982. "American Journal of Human Genetics." 35:1077-80 PMID 6417998] The family settled in New York, where she attended Hunter College High School and went on to attend Queens College, graduating in 1948 with a Bachelor of Science. She went on to work as a research assistant at the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, looking at blood disorders in mice.

Neufeld has been widely recognized for her contributions to science, she has been awarded the Wolf Prize, the Albert Lasker Award for Clinical Medical Research and was awarded the National Medal of Science in 1994, "for her contributions to the understanding of the lysosomal storage diseases, demonstrating the strong linkage between basic and applied scientific investigation."
