  • Joshua A. Gordon, MD, PhD
    Director of National Institute of Mental Health
    Biography
      Joshua A. Gordon, M.D., Ph.D. is the Director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the lead federal agency for research on mental disorders. He oversees an extensive research portfolio of basic and clinical research that seeks to transform the understanding and treatment of mental illnesses, paving the way for prevention, recovery, and cure. Dr. Gordon pursued a combined M.D.-Ph.D. degree at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Medical school coursework in psychiatry and neuroscience convinced him that the greatest need, and greatest promise, for biomedical science was in these areas. During his Ph.D. thesis with Dr. Michael Stryker, Dr. Gordon pioneered the methods necessary to study brain plasticity in the mouse visual system. Upon completion of the dual degree program at UCSF, Dr. Gordon went to Columbia University for his psychiatry residency and research fellowship because of the breadth and depth of the research opportunities there. Working with Dr. Rene Hen, Dr. Gordon and colleagues studied the role of the hippocampus, a brain structure known to be important for memory and emotional processes associated with anxiety and depression. He joined the Columbia faculty in 2004 as an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry. Dr. Gordon's research focuses on the analysis of neural activity in mice carrying mutations of relevance to psychiatric disease. His lab studied genetic models of these diseases from an integrative neuroscience perspective, focused on understanding how a given disease mutation leads to a behavioral phenotype across multiple levels of analysis. To this end, he employs a range of systems neuroscience techniques, including in vivo imaging, anesthetized and awake behavioral recordings, and optogenetics, which is the use of light to control neural activity. His research has direct relevance to schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, and depression. In addition to his research, Dr. Gordon was an associate director of the Columbia University/New York State Psychiatric Institute Adult Psychiatry Residency Program, where he directed the neuroscience curriculum and administered research training programs for residents. Dr. Gordon also maintained a general psychiatric practice, caring for patients who suffer from the illnesses he studied in his lab at Columbia. Dr. Gordon's work has been recognized by several prestigious awards, including the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation - NARSAD Young Investigator Award, the Rising Star Award from the International Mental Health Research Organization, the A.E. Bennett Research Award from the Society of Biological Psychiatry, and the Daniel H. Efron Research Award from the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.

Karen has also worked on various special projects including coordinating the review activities of the Biospecimen Repository Acquisition Committee (BRAC) for the Parkinson's Disease Biomarkers Program. Before joining extramural research, Karen did her postdoctoral fellowship in Molecular Biology at Johns Hopkins University, where she discovered a key role for the Hippo signaling pathway in nervous system development. She earned a B.S. from the University of the Philippines and a Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Medicine from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
      • James Gnadt, PhD
        Program Director, Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
        Biography
          Dr. Jim Gnadt, NINDS Program Director in Systems and Computational Neuroscience and Team Lead for the NIH BRAIN Integrative and Quantitative Approaches, has worked in systems and cognitive neuroscience and neuroengineering for over 35 years. He has held his current position at NINDS, the neurology institute of NIH, since 2008, and has been a principal in the NIH BRAIN Initiative since its inception in 2014 where he co-leads the team of trans-NIH Program Directors in the 'understanding circuits' part of the initiative. Dr. Gnadt manages a diverse NIH funding portfolio in systems and computational neuroscience, including experimental programs in integrated, team-science approaches and in intracranial opportunities for investigative human neuroscience. In collaboration with NIH review offices, Dr. Gnadt has developed tools to understand the precision of NIH review scoring and methods to convey its margins of uncertainty. Prior to taking the position at NINDS, Dr. Gnadt was an NIH-funded investigator since 1984, working on sleep physiology related to narcolepsy, quantitative neurophysiologic approaches in cognitive neuroscience, systems engineering to understand neural circuit dynamics, and neurological etiologies of eye behavior pathologies. Facilitating translation of curiosity-driven, fundamental biology into human impacts remains the focus of Dr. Gnadt's efforts at the NIH.
