The Weill Cornell Postdoctoral Association presents: the Postdoc “Pub Talk” Series, an outreach event featuring the research of WCM postdocs.
Two postdoc researchers will discuss what they are doing in the lab and the clinic to advance the scientific frontier in psychiatric disease:
Up first, Michael Notaras will present "When does schizophrenia really begin?". Join Michael as he discusses cutting-edge research involving 3D stem cell bioengineering technology to design “mini-brains”, organoids that mimic the first trimester of brain development. Using this technology, he is able to study when mental disorders such as schizophrenia truly commence and the long term consequences for adult disease.
Next, Reed Maxwell will present "More than Ups and Downs: Everything You Didn't Know You Needed to Know about BPD". Reed will discuss the ins and outs (and ups and downs) of Borderline Personality Disorder, including best treatments, how to recognize friends and loved ones who might have it, and how to help them out.
