The Stanley Center Psychiatric Genetics and Neuroscience Fellowship

The Stanley Center Psychiatric Genetics and Neuroscience Fellowship offers an opportunity for advanced study and research in Psychiatric Genetics and Neuroscience, and serves as a bridge between clinical training and the development of a research career. The fellowship, sponsored by the Broad Institute’s Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research and the MGH-McLean Hospital Adult Psychiatry Residency Research Concentration Program, provides funding for one to two years of research and study after residency training. A total of 1-2 new awards are granted each year.

Evan Macosko, M.D., Ph.D. is the 2014-2015 Stanley Center Psychiatric Genetics and Neuroscience Fellow. Macosko is a graduate of Harvard College (B.A.), Rockefeller University (Ph.D.), and Weill Cornell Medical College (M.D.), has postdoctoral appointments at MGH/McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School. His research project, which will be mentored by Steve McCarroll and performed in collaboration with Aviv Regev and David Weitz, will help address a critical need in neuroscience: defining the RNA transcriptome in individual cells of the human brain. The work will help lay a foundation for understanding how molecular perturbations lead to the pathophysiology found in patients with psychiatric disease.

Note: The next application cycle will begin in the summer of 2014. More information about the application process will be posted on this site at that time. For reference, the 2014-2015 fellowship announcement can be found here.
