The University of Chicago Medical Center’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience has a broad and multidisciplinary research program, spanning molecular, biological, and genetic approaches in animal models to human laboratory studies and patient-based clinical investigations in psychiatric disorders.

Its collective mission is to identify underlying mechanisms, risk factors, and develop efficacious treatments for a number of psychiatric and health conditions including aggression, anxiety and depression, autism spectrum disorders, bipolar illness and schizophrenia, dementia, obesity, eating, substance use, and impulse control disorders. Examination of developmental and cultural factors that impact mental health and treatment response are also strengths of the department, as is the use of cutting edge technologies including neuroimaging and functional genomics.
