Bioengineering in Psychiatry (BiP) Speaker Series: Colleen McClung, PhD

“Translational studies of circadian rhythms and psychiatry”

The overall goal of our work is to understand the mechanisms that lead to psychiatric disorders with a particular interest in the role of the circadian clock in the manifestation and treatment of these disorders.  I'll discuss our translational work in mice, rats and humans with a focus on how we use brain imaging and molecular data from human subjects to inform mechanistic studies in rodents (and vice versa). The hope is that these types of cross species studies will lead to the development of novel treatments for diseases like bipolar disorder and substance use disorders.  

Monday, May 3 at 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
