Did you know that mental illness is the leading cause of disability?

The mental health research conducted within the Department of Psychiatry aspires to improve and discover effective treatments and interventions that threaten our world. That’s why it is essential to continue to concentrate our research efforts in the areas of:

  • Neuroscience – understanding what goes wrong in the brain in mental illness.
  • Behavioral science – understanding the human action and behavior in society.
  • Genetics – the makeup and phenomena of a human being.

The Department of Psychiatry is committed to conducting ethical clinical research that keeps patient safety at the center while striving to advance new treatments and cures.

By getting involved, you can be part of tomorrow's medical breakthroughs.
