In Conversation: Genetic and Cultural Transfer of Trauma
Dec 1, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| Free
Timothy Mousseau (Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina), Dr. Rachel Yehuda (PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience and Director of the Traumatic Stress Studies Division at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine), and Mitchie Takeuchi, whose grandfather, Dr. Ken Takeuchi, was the founding president of Hiroshima’s Red Cross Hospital from 1937 to 1947, will speak to the genetic and biological transfer of trauma. The evening’s discussion will outline findings of each specialist’s work and experiences, and consider the expansive social and cultural consequences of such large-scale trauma through the lens of scientific research.
