Key Areas of Research

The goal of psychiatric research is to understand the complex interactions between biology and behavior, brain and mind. Bringing state-of-the-art approaches to the most difficult challenges in mental health will bring innovative treatments to those who need them. With the help of an impressive National Institutes of Health (NIH) research portfolio, the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami Health System/Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine is taking the lead.
