The Department is pleased to welcome Dr. Daniel Pine, Chief of the Section on Development and Affective Neuroscience for the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Intramural Research Program for a special lecture on Wednesday, March 13th from noon to 1:30pm.
A graduate of the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, Dr. Pine has conducted significant research focusing on pediatric mental disorders and has published more than 500 peer-reviewed papers. He was appointed to his current position at the NIMH in 2000 following a 10-year career at Columbia University where he was engaged in training, teaching, and research.

He is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences and has received numerous awards in recognition of his scientific contributions to the field.
