Dr. Rui Costa Appointed Director of Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute

I am pleased to announce my appointment of Dr. Rui Costa, Professor of Neuroscience and Neurology, to Director and CEO of the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute.  Rui joined Columbia University in 2016 and has served the Institute as Associate Director and CEO for the last two years.  His leadership in this role has been vital, and we are fortunate he has agreed to take the helm of the Institute, along with its inimitable founding Codirectors, Drs. Richard Axel and Eric Kandel, as the Institute enters its next era.
