Yale Medicine Magazine, 2003 - Winter


Neuroscientist Mark G. Barad, M.D. ’91, Ph.D. ’91, has been named the first Faculty Scholar by the Tennenbaum Family Interdisciplinary Center for Initiatives in Brain Research at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The center, established earlier this year with a four-year, $1 million gift from Michael E. and Suzanne Tennenbaum, created the scholar position to help spur unique, collaborative research into the brain’s plasticity, or adaptability, and to accelerate development of new treatments for brain damage and disease. Barad’s focus for the first two years of the program will include developmental delay in children, age-related memory loss, brain repair and regeneration after trauma or stroke, and psychotherapy, especially for anxiety disorders. Barad is an assistant professor of psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences at UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute.
