Facilities and Other Resources

The Yale Center for Brain and Mind Health (CBMH) was created in 2022 to promote interdisciplinary clinical and translational research on conditions that affect the mind and brain. Founding directors of the CMBH include Dr. McPartland and four leaders in clinical and translational neuroscientists from relevant departments at Yale: Eyiyemisi Damisah, MD, Neurosurgery and Neuroscience; Christopher Pittenger, MD, PhD, Psychiatry; Kevin Sheth, MD, Neurology and Neurosurgery; and Serena Spudich, MD, Neurology. The Center’s mission is to foster transformational work that bridges existing departments, levels of analysis, and disciplinary boundaries and focuses on areas of clinical and translational neuroscience that are broader than any single condition. Its 155 members span 30 departments across 5 different schools at the University. The CBMH brings together existing expertise within Yale and the Yale New Haven Hospital community and is recruiting new faculty in research areas to build on existing strengths. The Center provides grant funding and educational initiatives to advance these objectives. CBMH internal pilot grants support synergies among researchers in clinical and translational neuroscience, elevating collaboration and cross-disciplinary science by emphasizing novel multiple-PI collaborations, interdisciplinary work, and investigations that directly benefit patients. Focus areas align with and build upon existing strengths throughout the university, including those in the School of Public Health, the expanding School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of Nursing, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation. The CBMH also serves to enhance research collaboration between the School of Medicine and allied partner health care systems, including the Yale New Haven Health System, the VA Connecticut Healthcare System, and the Connecticut Mental Health Center. The strength of these organizations provides a synergistic opportunity for improving patient care.
