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, the MGH-McLean Hospital Adult Psychiatry Residency Research Concentration Program, and Brigham and Women's Hospital Harvard Longwood Residency 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.

The application cycle for 2015-2016 has ended. Updates on the next application cycle will be posted as they become available. Additional information on the fellowship, and past application guidelines, can be viewed by downloading the most recent application announcement here.

About the 2015-2016 Fellow
Thomas McCoy, M.D. is the 2015-2016 Stanley Center Psychiatric Genetics and Neuroscience Fellow. McCoy is a graduate of Dartmouth College (A.B.) and Weill Cornell Medical College (M.D.), and is currently a third-year resident in the MGH/McLean Hospital adult psychiatry program. He has been working with Broad associate member Roy Perlis on developing a high-throughput computational approach to deep, multi-dimensional psychiatric phenotyping. During the fellowship period, he intends to expand on this research by using machine learning, natural language processing, and information retrieval systems to develop a comprehensive, computational approach to phenotyping clinical populations based on longitudinal medical records.
