Joan Berman
Dr. Joan W. Berman, PhD, has been awarded basic science mentor for her contributions in mentoring Einstein faculty in their career development. The award was presented on Tuesday, December 10, by Dr. Allen M. Spiegel, the Marilyn and Stanley M. Katz Dean, and Dr. Genevieve S. Neal-Perry, associate dean for diversity mentoring at the sixth annual Faculty Mentoring Awards, held at the Block Building’s Lubin Dining Hall. Drs. Laurie Bauman, Professor of Pediatrics and director of the Preventive Intervention Research Center, and Liise-anne Pirofski, Professor of Medicine and of Microbiology & Immunology, and chief of the division of infectious diseases, each received an award for clinical science mentor.



Dr. Berman, whose lab examines mechanisms that mediate the pathogenesis of NeuroAIDS, has mentored more than 60 PhD, MD/PhD and medical students, postdoctoral and clinical fellows, and junior faculty. Many of her mentees have received K awards and have gone on to successful academic independence and faculty appointments. She also directs mentoring programs for women in neurovirology and for senior women faculty at Brown University.



Dr. Berman is the senior faculty advisor of Einstein’s graduate division and the director of the graduate student program in experimental pathology at Einstein. She is the co-chair of the Medical Student Research Committee and the director of the translational research track of Einstein’s new medical student research program, Student Opportunities for Academic Research (SOAR). She is on the Executive Boards of the International Society of Neurovirology and of the International Society of Neuroimmune Pharmacology. In 2012 she received the Women in Neuroscience Award. She has several NIH funded programs, and serves on numerous study sections and review boards. Read more.

Research

Experimental pathology aims to define disease in terms of fundamental molecular and cellular processes. Research in our Department is focused on critical issues in multiple disease classes. Areas of focus include 

Research in each of these areas is highly interactive, and the Department strives for a collegial atmosphere in which collaborations can flourish. This effort is conducted through a variety of department-level activities, including regular meetings to discuss work in progress and a departmental retreat at which students, postdoctoral fellows, residents and faculty all have opportunity to present and discuss their research.

Research Funding Program

The Department of Pathology has established a research funding program to encourage residents and fellows to participate in clinical pilot research projects. Up to $2,000 will be awarded per research project, for projects of up to two years in duration.
