The 2016 Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. Summer Institute

Directors: BJ Casey and Ali Cohen

The 2016 Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. Summer Institute was held July 11 to 15, 2016 on Manhattan’s beautiful Upper East Side and was directed by Dr. BJ Casey and Ali Cohen of the Sackler Institute at Weill Cornell Medical College. This year’s course focused on law and neuroscience specifically as it relates to juvenile justice reform, racial bias and lie detection. Participants benefited from lectures and from direct interactions with neuroscientists, psychologists and legal scholars during both social and scientific events scheduled each day. Room and partial board were provided for the attendees through the generous support of the Mortimer D. Sackler, M.D. family.



Application CLOSED. Please direct any questions or concerns to Melanie Silverman at mes2046@med.cornell.edu.
