SFARI Investigator Website

Ralda Nehme is a group leader at the Stanley Center for Psychiatric research at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, where she also directs the stem cell program, with a focus on increasing the representation of understudied ethnicities in cellular models and functional studies. Nehme and her group investigate the genetic, cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental and psychiatric diseases using human stem cell models.

Nehme completed her Ph.D. in the lab of Barbara Conradt at Dartmouth College, where she studied neuronal development in C. elegans. She then pursued her postdoctoral studies in the lab of Kevin Eggan at Harvard University, where she became interested in modeling psychiatric disease and developed efficient methods to generate neurons from human stem cells.
