The Department of Psychiatry at Indiana University School of Medicine is advancing research to uncover brain and behavioral disorder mechanisms and introduce new treatments. The department is continually making new discoveries in psychiatric and psychological disorders, including child and adolescent disorders; schizophrenia and psychotic disorders; alcohol and substance use disorders; and mood and anxiety disorders.
In collaboration with researchers at the Richard L. Roudebush Indianapolis VA Medical Center, the Department of Psychiatry is committed to the improvement of precision medicine in psychiatry through the development and improvement of diagnostics and therapies for psychiatric and related disorders. In addition, subject-matter experts conduct novel behavioral and lifestyle interventions for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and cognitive aging.
Using state-of-the-art technologies, including advanced brain imaging, genetic microarrays, stem cell preparations and animal knock out models, psychiatry faculty are advancing biomedical discoveries.
