On November 12, 1996, the first Sackler Institute for Developmental Psychobiology was founded at Weill Medical College of Cornell University as the result of a generous gift from the Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. family. The founding director, Dr. Michael Posner, arrived in July 1998 to create a highly collaborative scientific institute on human brain development, bringing the techniques of brain imaging, human genetics, electrophysiology, and behavioral methods. In 2002, Dr. BJ Casey took over as director of the institute. Since that time, the Institute has gained an international reputation for developmental research and training using human imaging and mouse models to identify the role of developmental sensitive periods and specific genes as first steps toward individualized and biologically targeted treatments for psychiatric disorders. In 2016, Dr. Francis Lee became the new director of the Sackler Institute.
