Three trainees in Yale Department of Psychiatry have been named recipients of the 2024 Thomas P. Detre Fellowship Award in Translational Neuroscience Research in Psychiatry.

The Detre Award, associated with the Neuroscience Research Training Program (NRTP), supports the translational research endeavors and educational needs of selected residents. Recipients receive $30,000 to support their work and their training.

The 2024 Detre Award recipients are:

  • Sarah Abdallah, MD: “Leveraging Copy-Number Variation to Identify Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Risk Genes”. Dr. Abdallah’s Detre Award is supported by Biohaven, Ltd.
  • Shivani Bhatt, MD, PhD: “Do selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitors cause serious falls in people living with HIV? A causal modeling approach.”
  • Henry Kietzman, MD, PhD: “Mapping neuronal and behavioral determinants of prosocial action in rodents”. Dr. Kietzman’s Detre Award is generously supported by the Coric Family Foundation.

The Detre Awards were established in memory of Dr. Thomas Detre, an internationally renowned academic psychiatrist, esteemed Yale Psychiatry faculty member and alumnus, and longtime Chair of Psychiatry, Vice Chancellor of health services, and Dean at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

The Detre Award, now in its 12th year, has been generously funded by departmental alumni. New support comes from Biohaven, Ltd. and from the Coric Family Foundation.
