The School of Graduate Studies

Annual Research Day 2016 will be on April 13, 2016.

The School of Graduate Studies is pleased to announce the center-wide ANNUAL RESEARCH DAY on Wednesday, April 13th, 2016. The day will consist of a morning platform session, two poster sessions, a keynote address in the afternoon, and finally, a dinner for students, alumni, and faculty and friends. Presentations are invited from students in the School of Graduate Studies, the College of Medicine, the School of Public Health, the College of Nursing, and the College of Health Related Professions. Medical residents, postdoctoral fellows, and undergraduate students conducting research with Downstate faculty are also encouraged to present their research findings.

Our Keynote lecture this year will be Rethinking Depression and its Treatment: Insights from Studies of Deep Brain Stimulationpresented by Helen S. Mayberg, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Neurology, and Radiology and the Dorothy C. Fuqua Chair of Psychiatric Neuroimaging and Therapeutics at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Helen will also be a central figure in a special Neuroethics symposium co-sponsored by the John Conley Division of Medical Ethics and Humanities and the School of Graduate Studies to be held on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 at the SUNY Global Center in Manhattan.

This year is a special year for the School of Graduate Studies because we turn 50 years old in 2016. Chandler Brooks founded the School of Graduate Studies in 1966. The Colleges of Nursing and Health Related Professions also turn 50 in 2016.

Applications to present will be open from March 7th to March 25th, 2016. Please email Ed Throckmorton, if you have any questions. A summary of directions and rules is here.
