Etats-Unis : Google s'intéresse à la Santé mentale

le 29 septembre 2015

[Buzz Feed] Google’s spun-out life sciences division under Alphabet just hired one of the nation’s leading neuroscientists and psychiatrists.

Google’s newly spun-out life sciences division is beefing up its roster and expanding into mental health. Dr. Thomas Insel said Tuesday he will step down from his post as director of the National Institute of Mental Health, the behavioral health arm of the National Institutes of Health, to join Alphabet , and its subsidiary Google X, in November.

The neuroscientist and psychiatrist has led the NIMH since 2002, making him the agency’s longest-serving director since its founder left, and he wrote in a prepared statement that he wanted to leave at a “high point.”
