Brain-Body Symposium

Thursday, September 28, 2023 at 9:00am to 4:00pm

Singleton Auditorium, 46-3002 43 Vassar Street, Cambridge, MA

The multidirectional, multilevel interplay between the brain and other body organ systems is gaining important attention among researchers and clinicians alike. Pathbreaking, holistic approaches that bridge multiple fields of study are required to unlock the complex relationship between the brain and central nervous system and other organ systems. Join us on September 28 to hear from leading researchers working to decode brain-body interactions and make real headway toward therapeutic strategies that result in longer, healthier lives.

Confirmed speakers starting at 9:00am:

  • Opening remarks from Yang Brain-Body Center director Polina Anikeeva (MIT)
  • Ivan de Araujo (Max Planck/Mt Sinai)
  • Diego Bohorquez (Duke)
  • Holly Ingraham (UCSF)
  • Stephen Lieberles (Harvard)
  • Francisco Quintana (Harvard)
