Pitt Psychiatry Awarded $14.8M National Institute on Drug Abuse Center Grant Focused on the Role of Sleep and Circadian Rhythms in Substance Abuse
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has awarded Pitt Psychiatry a Center of Excellence (P50) grant to fund the Center for Adolescent Reward, Rhythms and Sleep (CARRS). The CARRS Center will be led by Colleen McClung, PhD (Professor of Psychiatry and Clinical and Translational Science) and Daniel Buysse, MD (UPMC Professor of Sleep Medicine and Professor of Psychiatry and Clinical and Translational Science)...
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Promotes Meredith Wallace, PhD, to Associate Professor of Psychiatry
We are delighted to announce that Meredith Wallace, PhD, has been promoted to Associate Professor of Psychiatry by the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Dr. Wallace earned her PhD in biostatistics from the University of Pittsburgh in 2009 and began a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry that same year. Upon completion of her postdoctoral training in psychiatry, she conducted an...
New Research in Journals of Gerontology: Medical Sciences: The Multidimensional Sleep Domain Is a Significant Predictor of Mortality
Sleep is an important component of overall physical and mental well-being, and can predict important health outcome in older adults, including mortality. Sleep is often studied as a single construct represented by duration or the presence/absence of a disorder. However, scientists including Meredith Wallace, PhD, Daniel Buysse, MD, and Martica Hall, PhD, believe that sleep is a multidimensional construct, composed...
The Department of Psychiatry’s 19th Annual Research Day: A Day to Teach, Learn and Be Inspired
The 19th annual Department of Psychiatry Research Day on June 13, 2019 was our biggest yet! For the 505 faculty, postdoctoral students, residents, graduate students and staff who attended, the morning poster session and afternoon program offered a stimulating day of research and career development that was equal parts enlightenment, inspiration, fun and, at times, surprise. The morning session featured 140 posters...
