NKI Science Day 2024

The wide range of excellent research happening at NKI was showcased at our annual Science Day on April 30th in the Miki Kohn Conference Room. The event began with a Lifetime Achievement Talk on Perceptual and Cognitive Deficits in Severe Mental Illness by Pamela Butler, PhD. This was followed by shorter talks given by Maggie Ding, MS (Racism Hurts: Race-Based Traumatic Stress Predicts Bodily Pain in Midlife Black and Latinx Americans), Maria Aburto, PhD (tDCS-Induced Modulation of Face Emotion Processing Deficits in Schizophrenia), Wasif Zia, PhD (Development of a Next Gen 9.4 T Magnetic Resonance System for Translational Neuroscience), and Christopher Bare (Single Cell Multiomic Hyperdimensional Measurement Platforms). After the speakers, the space was reconfigured for the exhibition of nearly 40 scientific posters. The best poster award went to Christos Lisgaras, PhD, and second place was given to Hope Kronman, PhD.
