HSC receives major support for mental health research

December 2002

The National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression (NARSAD) recognized the Health Science Centerís leadership in psychiatric research by granting four researchers the Independent Investigator Award. The Health Science Center received more NARSAD grants this funding period than any other institution in the country.

The two-year, $100,000 grants will support three research projects in the department of psychiatry and one project in the department of pharmacology.

NARSAD is funded through private donations and is considered the premier agency, outside of the National Institutes of Health, for psychiatric research funding.

NARSAD presented awards to William Clarke, Ph.D., associate professor, pharmacology; Michael A. Escamilla, M.D., assistant professor, psychiatry; Jair C. Soares, M.D., associate professor, psychiatry; and Dawn I. Velligan, Ph.D., assistant professor, psychiatry.
