Ronald S. Duman, Ph.D., was appointed the Elizabeth Mears and House Jameson Professor of Psychiatry. He has been on the Yale faculty since 1988, most recently as a professor of psychiatry and pharmacology, and has worked on characterizing the molecular and cellular mechanisms that mediate the long-term effects of psychotropic drugs and stress. His research suggests that antidepressant treatments increase the survival and health of neurons and alter their synaptic architecture. Duman’s laboratory has also identified several neuropeptide receptors that are expressed in drug reward and craving.
