Larry J. Seidman Award for Outstanding Mentorship

larry seidman

This award is in honor of Dr. Lawrence J. Seidman, an eminent neuropsychologist and Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Seidman passed away on September 7, 2017 at the age of 67. His initial work was in the area of temporal lobe epilepsy, and his life-long work was focused on cognitive deficits, which are a core aspect of schizophrenia, the course and outcome of these impairments, and on their genetic, developmental and neurobiological underpinnings. His work also spanned other neurodevelopmental disorders, including attention deficit disorder.
