Alan Anticevic, PhD, associate research scientist in psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine, is the recipient of a Young Investigator Award at the 14th International Congress on Schizophrenia Research (ICOSR).

ICOSR is a biennial meeting where scientists involved with discovery in schizophrenia gather to exchange data, techniques, and ideas. The Young Investigator Award of this Congress is intended to attract junior investigators to the field of schizophrenia research.

The 14th Congress was held April 21-25, 2013 in Orlando, Florida. Anticevic was honored at the Young Investigator's Luncheon and Seminar on Monday, April 22nd.

In addition, Anticevic is lead author of two papers that were presented at ICOSR.

Anticevic's research interests are centered on cognitive neuroscience of psychiatric illness as well as functional neuroimaging analysis methodology. His research combines task-based, resting-state, pharmacological functional neuroimaging, and computational modeling approaches to mechanistically understand neural circuit dysfunction in disorders such as schizophrenia.

In 2012, Anticevic was the recipient of a NIH Director's Early Independence Award and a NARSAD Young Investigator Grant.
