Dr. Daniel Weinberger commented on living brain biopsies for an article in STAT about biopsies taken from deep brain stimulation (DBS) patients at Mount Sinai in Manhattan. Lieber Institute researchers led by Dr. Leonardo Collado Torres released as a preprint a rebuttal paper addressing Mount Sinai’s Living Brain Project in the fall of 2023.

In an interview with STAT, Dr. Weinberger said of Mount Sinai researchers, “’I think … they were so enthusiastic about setting a new standard in the field, that they didn’t fully consider some of the details of the data because it didn’t take a huge amount of digging to uncover’ the problems.”
