T32 Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Psychiatry

T32 Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Psychiatry

The past decade has seen a surge in neuroscience research findings, but so far, this progress has not translated into better treatments and outcomes for patients. Clinician-scientists trained in clinical neuroscience can help bridge that gap.

Our T32 postdoctoral research fellowship, Training the New Generation of Clinical Neuroscientists (Training-CN), funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, is designed to train psychiatrists, clinically trained PhDs, psychologists, and social workers to formulate original research on etiology, pathogenesis, course, treatment, and prevention of serious mental illness, with a focus on schizophrenia and major mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder.

Upon completion of this program, clinician-scientists will be uniquely poised to bridge the gap between basic neurobiology and clinical disease. This combination is critical for advancing our understanding of the neurobiology of psychiatric disorders and for developing the highly needed disease-modifying treatments for psychiatric illnesses.
