The Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior founded the Graduate Program in Neuroscience in 2007. The Program in Neuroscience (PIN) is an interdepartmental collaborative PhD training program that includes faculty members from basic and clinical departments across the UMMC campus including the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior. It is currently led by Dr. Michael Lehman professor and chair of the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomical Sciences as Interim Director. Dr. Donna Platt, associate professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior serves as Associate Director.
The PIN receives generous stipend support from the School of Graduate Studies in the Health Sciences and currently trains nearly 20 PhD and MD/PhD students.
All of the faculty in the DNBR, along with faculty in the Division of Psychology, participate in the PIN teaching and research training. In addition, psychiatry residents have the unique opportunity to participate in basic/clinical research activities of the PIN and DNBR as a part of a research elective in the Residency Training Program.
