Discovering effective treatments for all ages


One of the primary goals of academic psychiatry is to expand our understanding of psychiatric illness and improve psychiatric care through research. The mental health research conducted within the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Department of Psychiatry aspires to improve and discover effective treatments and interventions for all ages.  We can provide a variety of research experiences for medical students and residents and welcome them to design experiences that complement their interests and background, plan a longitudinal research experience in concert with a faculty member, or work brief one-month research electives.

For more information about specific research projects and opportunities, do not hesitate to contact individual investigators or me.
