 – February 23, 2012  –– 

The Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine has received a $250,000 gift from The Iris & Junming Le Foundation to advance neuroimaging research conducted by young scientists in the early stages of their careers. The donation will provide up to six grants for $35,000 to $45,000 for psychiatric neuroimaging pilot projects over the next two years. The goal is to advance researchers' understanding of the etiology of major psychiatric disorders and identify new treatment strategies for patients. "We are extraordinarily grateful to Dr. Le and his wife, Iris, for their support," says Wayne K. Goodman, MD, Chairman and the Esther and Joseph Klingenstein Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai.
