  • Joshua A. Gordon, MD, PhD
    Director of National Institute of Mental Health
    Biography
      Dr. Gordon received his MD/PhD degree at the University of California, San Francisco and completed his Psychiatry residency and research fellowship at Columbia University. He joined the Columbia faculty in 2004 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry where he conducted research, taught residents, and maintained a general psychiatry practice. In September of 2016, he became the Director of the National Institute of Mental Health. Dr. Gordon's research focuses on the analysis of neural activity in mice carrying mutations of relevance to psychiatric disease. His lab studies 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 anesthetized and awake behaving recordings and optogenetics, which is the use of light to control neural activity. His work has direct relevance to schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, and depression. Dr. Gordon's work has been recognized by several prestigious awards, including the 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.

      • Michael Benros, MD, PhD
        Research Leader, Mental Health Care Copenhagen, Copenhagen University Hospital
        Biography
          Dr. Michael E. Benros, MD, PhD is a clinician and Research Leader into biological causes of mental disorders at the Mental Health Centre Copenhagen, Copenhagen University Hospital. He got his medical degree and PhD at Aarhus University and conducted his psychiatric and neurological residencies at the Copenhagen University Hospitals. His research has focused on the possible role of inflammation in the aetiology of mental disorders, where he has taking advantage of the valuable data from the Danish nationwide registers and biobanks. He has been guided by the idea that maybe some of the mental disorders could be prevented or cured by focusing on the possible role of infection, autoimmune diseases and other inflammatory mechanisms. He is a board member of the Psychiatric Immunology Section of the World Psychiatric Association and the DANFUND research collaboration. He has received a number of awards, including the prestigious Sapere Aude Research Leader award from the Independent Research Fond Denmark. He is recognized internationally for his ongoing involvement in clinical & epidemiological research into mental health, being at the forefront of the emerging field of psychiatric immunology and has helped advancing the field through several landmark papers highlighting the association between immune-related factors and mental illness. He now leads a sizable effort - PSYCH-FLAME - to disentangle the role of Inflammation in the development of Severe Mental Disorders. PSYCH-FLAME combines immune exposures from the nationwide Danish registers, with immunogenetic investigations, and novel research on cerebrospinal fluid and blood obtained from biobank and clinical studies of patients with schizophrenia and affective disorders also utilizing omics and systems biology approaches. These novel extensive investigations of the possible immunological contribution to the disorders aims to increase the understanding of the immune system's role and pave the way more precise diagnostics and new treatment targets.

                Dr. Helen Bronte-Stewart is the John E Cahill Family Professor in the department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences. She is a neurologist, neurophysiologist and movement disorders specialist, who has used her training in mathematics and physics, bioengineering, neurology, movement disorders, and single unit electrophysiology in primates to develop a rigorous translational program in motor control research in human subjects with movement disorders. Dr. Bronte-Stewart is the Director of the Stanford Comprehensive Movement Disorders Center, the Co-Director of the Stanford Balance Center, and the Division Chief of Movement Disorders in the department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences. She directs the Stanford Human Motor Control and Balance Laboratory, where she has developed computerized, quantitative measurements of motor behavior, which are being implemented in a wide range of Movement Disorders. Her research investigates the brain's contribution to abnormal movement in human subjects, using synchronous brain recordings and quantitative kinematics, and how these are modulated with different frequencies and patterns of neurostimulation. Dr. Bronte-Stewart's team was the first in the United States to implant a sensing neurostimulator, from which they can record brain signals directly, and use the patient's own neural activity to drive the first closed loop neurostimulation studies in Parkinson's disease. This work has led to the first multicenter international clinical trial in closed loop deep brain stimulation for people with Parkinson's disease, which Dr. Bronte-Stewart will lead.

She has been involved in the study and development of time- and structure-adapted neuromodulation for disease-tailored treatment. A computational neuroscientist by training, she received her PhD with John Chapin from Hahnemann University in Philadelphia while studying the nonlinear dynamics of oscillatory behavior in the subcortical visual system. After a post-doctoral fellowship with David McCormick at the Yale University School of Medicine where she then studied the dynamics of thalamocortical activity in the somatosensory system during normal and epileptic states, she moved to the Center for Complex Systems in Florida to investigate large-scale human brain dynamics during dyadic interaction. While at the University of Miami, she reported the first longitudinal study in humans of the effects of DBS on the underlying neuropathophysiology in a psychiatric disorder. Her work described the dynamics of neuronal activation in correlation with the symptomatology observed in Tourette syndrome, offering important insights into tic genesis and expression. She has now expanded her work to studying the neuropathomechanisms of whole network dysfunction in a range of psychiatric and movement disorders in humans, including OCD, addiction and Parkinson's disease.
