Summer Institute 2015

The 2015 Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. Summer Institute

Directors: BJ Casey and Dylan Gee

The 2015 Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. Summer Institute was held June 22 to 26, 2015 on Manhattan’s beautiful Upper East Side and directed by Drs. BJ Casey and Dylan Gee of the Sackler Institute at Weill Cornell Medical College. This year’s course had a focus on the effects of acute and chronic stress on brain and behavior throughout development. Scientific discoveries were presented from molecule to circuit to behavior. Participants benefited from lectures and from direct interactions with the lecturers during both social and scientific events scheduled each day. Room and partial board was provided for the attendees through the generous support of the Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. family.



Application CLOSED. Please direct any questions and concerns to Danielle Dellarco at dad2028@med.cornell.edu.
