Dr. Ryan Logan Welcomed to Faculty
Ryan Logan, PhD Appointed to the Department of Psychiatry Faculty Congratulations to Ryan Logan, PhD on his appointment as an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. The focus of Dr. Logan?s research is the role of circadian rhythms in addiction and other psychiatric diseases. As an undergraduate student at the University of Maine, he studied the effects of circadian di...
