Date:11/1/2013

diction. Using these tools, Dr. Goldstein has helped characterize the role of the prefrontal cortex in the impaired ability to process reward and control behavior in drug addiction, linking behavior, cognition and emotion to brain function and integrity in this chronically relapsing disorder.

Eric Nestler, MD, Professor and Chair of the Department of Neuroscience and Director of the Friedman Brain Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, applauded Dr. Goldstein. "We are delighted to have Rita Goldstein and her world-renowned research program at Mount Sinai. Dr. Goldstein's work is distinguished by its unique grounding in basic neuroscience to carry out cutting edge investigations of brain changes in human drug addicted individuals. Her leadership role at Mount Sinai will be instrumental as we establish leading neuroimaging and drug abuse research programs on campus."

Dr. Goldstein credits her colleagues and resources at her lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai with facilitating her research. She said: "Support from the Friedman Brain Institute and state-of-the-art imaging facilities at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai's Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute is helping our laboratory to make inroads in discovering new therapeutic targets and developing approaches to remedy compromised brain function in addiction. I am thrilled to be receiving this award. It is a timely recognition of the crucial importance and rigor of neuroimaging studies in people with drug addiction. Our hope is that this research will lead to the development of intervention strategies that will improve treatment of drug addiction and other chronically relapsing disorders."

Dr. Goldstein also expressed gratitude to members of her lab, which she co-directs with Nelly Alia-Klein, PhD, -- including newly-appointed Assistant Scientist Scott Moeller, PhD; post-docs Muhammad Parvaz, PhD, and Rebecca Preston-
