The Friedman Brain Institute

Events

The Addiction Club holds monthly dinner discussions that are focused on clinical addiction cases presented by clinicians and complemented a presentation by a basic and/or translational researcher to provide biological perspectives about the particular cases being discussed. All those involved in the clinical care or research of substance use disorders are welcome to attend.

For further information and to be included to the Addiction Club email list serve, please contact Dr. Yasmin Hurd at yasmin.hurd@mssm.edu.

The Brain Body Research Center Seminar Series brings together outstanding leaders, both within the Mount Sinai community and beyond, to highlight recent advances in understanding connections between the brain and body in health and disease. Our series will be held live for the Mount Sinai community and live-streamed for those from outside institutions.

Director: Scott Russo, PhD

For more information, please visit the Brain Body Seminar Series website.

The Cells, Circuits and Behavior (CCB) WIP includes 13 laboratories whose work focuses on the integration of molecular, cellular and behavioral studies in the context of normal and diseased states.

(Hiro Morishita, Peter Rudebeck, Paul Slesinger, co-organizers)

Thursdays from 9:30-10:30am (Hess 8-101)

Schedule and Location

The Center for Computational Psychiatry (CCP), led by Dr. Xiaosi Gu, hosts a monthly afternoon seminar series in which leading researchers from around the world present their latest findings in the fields of computational psychiatry, computational modeling, and cognitive neuroscience research. Discussion topics include: transdiagnostic approaches to psychiatry and mental health, reinforcement learning and human decision-making, and computational models of social and affective processes. Speakers are hosted virtually and, when possible, in-person at the CCP located at 55 West 125th Street, Suite 1302, New York, NY 10029.

The Center for Neurotechnology and Behavior (CNB) brings together researchers in neuroscience at Sinai that focus on elucidating the function of brain circuits in normal and diseased states. A core objective of the CNB is to support the development and implementation of cutting-edge neurotechniques. To foster new collaborations, CNB also sponsors a monthly science and dinner series on Tuesday’s, whereby individual labs provide food, clean-up, and scientific presentations.

For more information on the CNB, please contact Dr. Paul Slesinger at paul.slesinger@mssm.edu.

For more information, please contact Dr. Samuel E. Gandy at samuel.gandy@mssm.edu.

For more information, please contact Dr. Emily Bernstein at emily.bernstein@mssm.edu.

The goal is to bring chromatin biologists together from all areas of research including cancer, development, neurosciences, stem cells, and structural biology. The club is meant to allow participants to learn about what their colleagues are doing on campus and facilitate interactions and collaborations.

The Epigenetics WIP includes 9 laboratories whose work focuses on transcriptional and epigenetic mechanisms by which environmental stimuli (e.g., a drug of abuse, stress) over a lifetime change cell and circuit function to mediate lasting behavioral abnormalities.

(Ian Maze, Eric Nestler, co-organizers)

Wednesdays from 9:30-10:30am (Annenberg 19-79)

Schedule and Location

As part of ongoing efforts to centrally coordinate external talks across GGS department, this new seminar series will be the only external speaker series for the department during the 2022-2023 academic year. The External Speaker Series serves as a social and academic hub for students and faculty to congregate and learn together. The seminars will be held every other Thursday at 3pm in a hybrid format. A student session will also take place prior to each seminar.

 Please see Mount Sinai's event page website for more information on specific lectures.

For more information on the external speaker series, please contact Maria Julia Castro at mariajulia.castro@mssm.edu.

The NDD-WIP is a seminar series for laboratories at Mount Sinai that study process of neural development, regeneration, and stem cells. Investigations include also studies of the underlying biology of the disease processes in neurodevelopmental diseases (e.g., autism), neural degeneration (e.g., Alzheimers’s and Parkinson’s disease), and neural malignancies (brain cancer).

(Silvia De Rubeis, Roland Friedel, co-organizers)
