Annual Research Symposium Exhibits the Strength of UAB Psychiatry

The UAB Department of Psychiatry held its Fourth Annual Research Symposium on April 13, 2010.  The event included poster presentations from our faculty, graduate students, and residents followed by three oral presentations.  Two Department of Psychiatry faculty members presented: Dr. Jacinda Hammel, Implementing Evidence Based Practices and Dr. Karen Gamble, Night Owls and Early Birds: Circadian Regulation and Mental Health.  A special presentation, Medial Prefrontal Cortex in PTSD: The Role on Contextual Processing, was given by our distinguished guest, Dr. Israel Liberzon.  Dr. Liberzon is the Theophile Raphael Professor of Neuroscience and Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at the University of Michigan.

With more than 80 attendees, the symposium was an immense success.  This annual event is a great way for the Department of Psychiatry to share their work with the Birmingham community.  Below are a few pictures from the informative and educational event.
