2023 Anne Klibanski Visiting Lecture Series 02
“Subcortical brain regions in anxiety disorders: Findings from ENIGMA-Anxiety”

Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm (7-8p SAST)

The Anne Klibanski Visiting Lecture Series was created to support and advance the careers of women. These lectures offer the opportunity for women faculty from outside institutions that have hosted Anne Klibanski Scholars to present on their expertise, either alone or in tandem with an Anne Klibanski Scholar.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, participants were able to:

  • Identify subcortical brain regions implicated in major anxiety disorders
  • Recognize sex and age as potential modifiers of subcortical volumes in anxiety disorders
  • Distinguish between different types of data aggregation in large-scale neuroimaging collaborations

Target Audience: This activity is intended for faculty and faculty trainees.
Course Director: Miriam A. Bredella, MD, MBA, Director, Center for Faculty Development; Professor of Radiology, Harvard Medical School
