Taylor receives NIMH grant toward efforts to mentor young scientists, researchers

Warren D Taylor, M.D., MHSc., Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Mood Disorders Program Center for Cognitive Medicine, was recently awarded NIMH funding toward his K24 Midcareer Investigator Award in Patient-Oriented Research. This proposal will support Dr. Taylor in his efforts to mentor young scientists and researchers, from medical students to medical residents to junior faculty.  

It will also support new research examining the role of Alzheimer's disease in the development of depression in older adults, and whether amyloid deposition (an early marker of Alzheimer's disease) may influence antidepressant treatment response.
