Pathways to Cures:
Translational Science Research Day

Announcing Our
2018 Robert Newcomb Interdisciplinary Team Science
Award Recipient

This award was established to highlight and honor individuals who have played a formative role in bringing together teams of researchers from diverse, trans-, multi-, and interdisciplinary backgrounds in studies and projects that have advanced biomedical and clinical research. Bob (Robert) was a quintessential “team player.” His many skills as an athlete and coach, his dedication to teaching, commitment to translational research at UC Irvine, and outstanding leadership in statistical analysis of complex problems uniquely positioned Bob to catalyze and incubate teams of investigators. Nothing was more delightful to Bob than to bring together talented and enthusiastic scientists, students, and staff in pursuit of finding real solutions and discoveries that would advance clinical care and research.

The Conte Center @ UCI is a multidisciplinary, collegial and industrious team of experts in neurobiology, developmental psychology, neuroimaging, psychiatry, computational science and statistics. The versatility of the team enables and integrates the multiple perspectives, disciplines and approaches needed to tackle the complex questions surrounding adolescent brain development.

Together, the team addresses the effects of early-life experiences on brain development in the full translational sense: from the clinic to the bench and back to the clinic.

The team employs cutting-edge techniques spanning single molecules and cells to brain networks, and combine orthogonal approaches including epigenetics, neuroimaging, and modelling across species. As a team, they synthesize findings into clinically relevant discoveries that should lead to interventions, in the hope of preventing brain disorders.
