The Department of Psychiatry recognizes the exemplary expertise of our distinguished faculty:
New Faculty Spotlight
Susan Sangha, PhD, joined the Department of Psychiatry in January 2002. As one of the most recent faculty additions, Dr. Sangha has made an immediate impact with her research to identify neurobiological mechanisms underlying circuits related to how individuals learn to discriminate among environmental cues that signal situations of safety, fear or reward. An inability to properly differentiate these cues is linked to a variety of psychiatric disorders. Dr. Sangha has developed a behavioral paradigm in rodents and also collaborates with clinical neuroscientists to adapt her research to the patient population.
We look forward to her future contributions and discoveries!
