Welcome to the Rutgers NJMS Research in psychiatry. This research specializes in applied and basic research into the development and treatment of behavioral health problems. The faculty consists of psychiatrists, psychologists, neuroscientists, and other health professionals. The overall mission of the research program is to understand the social and physical causes and treatment of behavioral health problems that are associated with disorders that arise in infancy, childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Research efforts of faculty, residents and post-doctoral fellows include human and animal studies focusing on major childhood and adult psychiatric disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, autism, pain disorders, violence and aggression, schizophrenia, and addiction. Department of Psychiatry, on behalf of faculty members, encourages graduate student, medical students, residents and fellows to get involved in these research projects. Faculty members would be happy to get anyone interested in joining them in their respective research projects. Results of research projects have been presented at regional, national and international conferences and have been published in peer-reviewed journals.
