Etienne Sibille, PhD Promoted

Etienne Sibille, PhD Promoted  to Rank of Associate Professor with Tenure

The University of Pittsburgh has granted tenure at the rank of Associate Professor of Psychiatry to Etienne Sibille, PhD. Dr. Sibille’s primary research focus is to identify and characterize the molecular pathology of depression in brain areas involved in mood regulation. His laboratory performs parallel investigations in human postmortem samples and genetic rodent models. A secondary focus involves understanding the molecular bases and genetic contributions of human brain aging in the development of late-life functional declines. He serves as the principal investigator of K02, R01, and R21 grants awarded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), has overseen two investigations within the University of Pittsburgh Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and is an active co-investigator for three other NIMH-funded projects. Dr. Sibille is also committed to the training and mentorship of students and young investigators. He is the Co-Director of the T32 training program, Training for Transformative Discovery in Psychiatry, the co-chair of the University’s Center for Neuroscience 25th annual retreat, and continues to be an enthusiastic mentor to numerous students, post doctoral fellows and junior faculty. Congratulations to Dr. Sibille for achieving this important milestone in his career.
