IMS Fellow Emery Brown—Edward Hood Taplin Professor of Medical Engineering and computational neuroscience at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT professor of health sciences and technology, investigator with The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at MIT, and Warren M. Zapol Professor of Anaesthesia at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH)—is stepping down as co-director of the Harvard–MIT Program in Health Sciences and Technology to begin work on a new joint center between MIT and MGH.
