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.

Led by Constantinos G. Hadjipanayis, MD, PhD, the Brain Tumor Research Group (BTRG) Meeting will be held monthly as a forum for investigators at Mount Sinai to present data from their respective laboratories which focus on brain tumors. The monthly BTRG meeting will be open to postdoctoral, graduate, medical, and undergraduate students. These meetings will foster important collaborations between investigators that could lead future grant submissions. When: One Thursday a month from 3-5 pm Venue: Virtual - via Zoom

For details, please contact Alexandros.bouras@mountsinai.org

Variable time and place) Speakers from Mount Sinai, national and international research institutions are invited to discuss the latest developments in human imaging, pre-clinical imaging, nanomedicine and molecular imaging, artificial intelligence, and biomedical engineering.

For more information, please contact: Alexis Mark Alexis.Mark@mountsinai.org or Chris Cannistraci Christopher.Cannistraci@mssm.edu

 

(4th Wed of the month at 2:30pm in BMEII) This monthly meeting host speakers on topics related to the physics of medical imaging. Topics include: motion correction, image acquisition, protocol optimization.

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. (Zoom Meeting ID: 814 5626 6464; Passcode: 444932).

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 mailto:paul.slesinger@mssm.edu

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

The goal is to bring chromatin biologists together from all areas of research including cancer, development, neurosciences, 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.

Cognition Club meets to discuss research on cognitive function at a wide range of levels, from molecular biology of memory to cognitive function in psychiatric disease. The goal is to provide a forum in which researchers working on diverse problems in the broad area of cognition may spark new ideas and translational collaborations.

For more information on the Cognition Club, please contact Dr. Daniela Schiller at daniela.schiller@mssm.edu and Mercedes Perez-Rodriguez at mercedes.perez@mssm.edu.

The Cajal Club is organized by the memebr of Kastor Neurobiology of Aging Laboratories and meets to discuss ongoing research on functional aspects of systems neuroscience, with a particular emphasis on the cellular and molecular biology of brain aging and age-related brain disorders. It will merge on occasion with the Cognition Club when topics being discussed are of relevance for the larger group.

For more information on the Cajal Club, please contact Dr. Patrick Hof at patrick.hof@mssm.edu

Fall 2021-Spring 2022
Wednesdays & Fridays 9-10 am (we start at 9 am sharp)

Beginning after Labor Day, all WIPs will be hybrid. We would like the presenters to give their talks live in Annenberg 19-79. Everyone is encouraged to attend live. However, the talks will also be transmitted by Zoom so that anyone who would prefer to attend remotely can with ease. (Presenters who cannot present live will be able to do so by Zoom.)

Schedule and Location

The Pamela Sklar Division of Psychiatric Genomics and colleagues present Zoom meetings that feature both internal work in progress and external speakers presenting exciting recent publications and emerging bodies of work. Presentation cover a broad spectrum of psychiatric genetic and genomic research. Common themes include, but are not limited to, large-scale genetics, functional genomics and epidemiology, human brain development and function, stem cells and neurobiology, computational biology, biomarker discovery and evaluation of novel treatments. Our goal is to provide a forum for trainees and faculty to keep up to speed on the latest research topics in the field of psychiatric genomics and to spark new ideas and collaborations.

Meetings occur Tuesday at 3pm once every month. For more information on the Neurogenomics Seminar Series, please contact Dr. Michael Breen at michael.breen@mssm.edu.

The Seaver Autism Center hosts Zoom meetings that feature both internal work in progress and external speakers presenting exciting recent publications and emerging bodies of work. Presentations cover a broad spectrum of basic and clinical research on autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders. Common themes include, but are not limited to, large-scale genetics, genomics and epidemiology, clinical assessments, clinical genetics, stem cell biology and murine models of autism and related disorders. Our goal is to provide a forum for trainees and faculty to keep up to speed on the latest research topics in the autism field and to spark new ideas and translational collaborations.

Meetings occur weekly/fortnightly on Tuesday at 10:30am. For more information on the Seaver Autism Center Seminar Series, please contact Dr. Michael Breen at michael.breen@mssm.edu.

Organized by Dr. Sophia Frangou. These seminars are open to all those who are involved in research or clinical care of patients with psychosis and highlight new research findings and their translational application.
