Colleen A. McClung PhD to Present in the  Senior Vice Chancellor’s Research Seminar Series

Dr. Colleen McClung, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, will present a seminar on Circadian Genes, Dopamine, and the Biology of Psychiatric Disorders, as part of the Senior Vice Chancellor’s Research Seminar Series. The seminar will take place at 12:00 noon on Friday, June 1, 2012, in Auditorium 6 of Scaife Hall.

Dr. McClung’s research focuses on circadian rhythms and their importance in mood and addictive disorders.  By studying the mechanisms underlying circadian rhythms and individual circadian genes, the regulation of mood and addictive behaviors can be better understood and successful mood stabilizers for treating mood disorders may ultimately be identified.

Each year, a select group of young investigators in the biomedical sciences are invited to participate in the Senior Vice Chancellor’s Research Seminar Series to highlight the cutting-edge research being conducted in various departments of the health sciences.  For more information on the Dr. Colleen McClung’s presentation and the Senior Vice Chancellor’s Research Seminar series, please click here.
