In 2004, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard launched with a mission to improve human health. Since that time, biology and medicine have evolved in astonishing ways, and so have we. Our community now includes more than four thousand scientists, software engineers, and more, with collaborations in more than three dozen countries.
We think the amazing pace of scientific progress is a story worth sharing. In celebration of our 15th anniversary, in 2019 and 2020 we hosted a series of public talks that trace the evolution of key fields of science and medicine over our first 15 years, and look ahead to how these fields might continue to evolve in the future.
We invite you to experience the entire series of Broad@15 talks, and to share them with your family and friends.
The genomic revolution gave scientists a new foothold for understanding the origins of psychiatric disorders. Geneticist Benjamin Neale and neuroscientist Beth Stevens, both members of the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute, will follow modern psychiatry's development over the decades, and discuss how science at the intersection of genetics and biology is opening new directions and giving new hope.
