Brendan Clark, Ph.D, Joins UAB Psychiatry

CPM1 270x20312-266x200The Department is pleased to announce that Brendan Clark, Ph.D. will be joining the UAB Department of Psychiatry as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Behavioral Neurobiology in August 2013. Dr. Clark came to UAB in September of 2010 following the completion of his training at the University of Southern Mississippi.  He is a licensed clinical psychologist and completed his clinical internship at the VA Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care System in Biloxi, Mississippi.  Dr. Clark is currently in the process of completing a research fellowship with a focus on addiction. His primary focus will be the development of a new, extramurally-funded line of patient-based research in the Department with research interests in behavioral economics and cooperative behavior.

He has successfully applied this paradigm to study the cooperative strategies used by members of the criminal justice system, and plans to expand his work to the study of anxiety and mood disorders. He will also provide clinical services, primarily in the 1917 Clinic, as part of our partnership with the UAB HIV/AIDS programs.

Please join the Department in weloming Dr. Clark to the faculty!
