Bodini Fellowships

The Alexander Bodini Research Fellowship supports a researcher in adolescent psychiatry.

Like other Academy Fellows, the Bodini Fellows spend one or two academic semesters in residence at the Italian Academy. The Academy will provide office space and support, aid in finding convenient housing for the duration of the Fellowship, and opportunities for the organization of public lectures, seminars, conferences and publication. The Bodini Fellows are expected to participate in the life of the Academy, including the weekly luncheon seminars with the other Fellows. Independent research, however, is foremost, and Bodini Fellows are encouraged to make use of all of Columbia's facilities.

The Alexander Bodini Fellowship in psychiatry at the Italian Academy is intended for a child psychiatrist or developmental neuroscientist who intends to work in a Columbia laboratory in fields pertinent to his or her own. Relevant Columbia University resources include a large and varied Department of Child Psychiatry at the College of Physicians & Surgeons, with its far-reaching clinical service that is organized into subspecialty clinics serving children and teens with autism, depression and anxiety and disruptive disorders, and an outstanding MRI laboratory. Other areas of strength are psychiatric epidemiology; psychotherapy research and especially cognitive behavior therapy for anxiety disorders and interpersonal therapy for mood disorders; psychopharmacology of anxiety, depression and autism and early onset ADHD; classification and diagnosis; suicide and suicide prevention; eating disorders; and services research. The Department of General Psychiatry has considerable resources in genetics, in psychosis, depression and anxiety disorders, PET imaging and neuroanatomy.

Listed below are all Bodini Fellows, including holders of the past Fellowships in Culture and Religion, and in Global Development and Finance.
