“I think today’s psychiatry needs to be revolutionized to bring a more systematic approach that is not bound by conventional disease categories. That requires integrating information from multiple levels including neuroscience, genetics, and behavior, with the use of computational science. This is why I have designed my training to encompass such an interdisciplinary background. ” ~ Şeydanur
