Department of Psychiatry

The U-M Department of Psychiatry is part of Michigan Medicine, one of the nation's leading health care facilities, and is home to the Eisenberg Family Depression Center and the Molecular and Behavioral Neurosciences Institute. We provide patients with state-of-the-art treatment and care of psychiatric disorders, much of it based on the innovative research done by our faculty. Our psychiatric care facility is one of the best in the country, and was one of the very first to provide modern diagnosis and research on mental disorders.

Eisenberg Family Depression Center

The Department of Psychiatry is home to the Eisenberg Family Depression Center. Established in 2001, the center is the first of its kind devoted entirely to bringing depression into the mainstream of medical research, translational care, education, and public policy. The Eisenberg Family Depression Center is at the forefront in changing the paradigm of how depression and bipolar illnesses are understood and treated.

Department of Psychology

The Department of Psychology is consistently ranked as a top department in the nation because of the excellence of our faculty, students and programs. Our faculty are recognized nationally and internationally for their contributions to the creation of new scientific knowledge in psychology. Our undergraduate and graduate programs are recognized for pioneering contributions in classroom and research education, as well as innovative experiential learning. The department has been recognized for decades as one of the most distinguished and productive departments of psychology in the world. We hope you will find the information you seek on our website.

Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS)

MIDAS advances cross-cutting research in data science theory, methodology and applications. We provide leadership in research best practices, including reproducible data science and ethical data science. We enable research through pilot funding, training and dataset access. We facilitate groundbreaking ideas and foster collaboration through research working groups and other research incubation events. This page is an overview of data science resources at MIDAS and elsewhere on U-M campus, at various stages of research.

Center for Consciousness (CCS)

The mission of the CCS is to advance multidisciplinary research, education, and clinical care as it relates to consciousness.

This includes the initiation and support of collaborative scholarship across the medical school, outreach to relevant schools and centers at the University of Michigan and beyond, sponsorship of educational events as well as student involvement in the field, and application of novel techniques to clinical practice. We are passionate about this mission and welcome your involvement in the CCS.

CTSUs are business units that partner with investigators and their teams to ensure the timely and efficient activation and execution of clinical trials at Michigan Medicine, supported by the Clinical Trials Support Office (CTSO). The CTSO provides a structured and formalized path for developing study teams early in their career or new to clinical trial research. This includes training and education opportunities, as well as resources highlighting, regulatory compliance, database management, research pharmacy, and more. CTSUs use a standard set of work guides to harmonize elements across the clinical research enterprise while allowing for local flexibility to reflect the uniqueness of various types of research. CTSUs provide mandatory pre-/post-award support and optional study coordinator support.

MICHR is the home to U-M’s NIH Clinical Translational Science Award. MICHR’s ultimate goal is to accelerate the translation of scientific discoveries, resulting in improved health for local, national, and global communities. MICHR provides U-M researchers with the training, tools, and services necessary to speed discovery of new ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease. Specifically, MICHR develops research talent through its predoctoral and postdoctoral education programs; helps investigators launch their ideas through pilot grant funding and consultation; connects researchers with community groups, clinics, practice-based networks, and potential study volunteers; and supports research teams with clinical research management services, including biostatistical design and analysis, study monitoring, project-specific database development, data and study management mentoring, and a fully-equipped and professionally-staffed clinical research unit.

MICHR received $179M new funding from R01 Boot Camp and $1.38M from Pilot Grants.

External Networks

National Network of Depression Centers

National Network of Depression Centers (NNDC)

The National Network of Depression Centers (NNDC) develops and fosters connections among members to use the power of our network to advance scientific discovery, and to provide stigma free, evidence-based care to patients with depressive and bipolar illnesses.

EPNIET (Early Psychosis Intervention Network)

Early Psychosis Intervention Network (EPNIET)

EPINET is a national learning health care system for early psychosis. EPINET links early psychosis clinics through standard clinical measures, uniform data collection methods, data sharing agreements, and integration of client-level data across service users and clinics. Clients and their families, clinicians, health care administrators, and scientific experts partner within EPINET to improve early psychosis care and conduct large-scale, practice-based research.

University of Rochester Medical Center

Haber Conte Center

The overall goal of this Center is to further our understanding of the neural network central to obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and the abnormalities within that network that are associated with the disease. Specifically, we will use a multimodal, network approach to:

  1. Localize specific regions and the pathways that connect them that are altered in the disease

  2. Determine the effects of neuromodulation on the connectivity of the circuit(s)

  3. Use these data to develop a non-invasive approach for individualized treatment

Butler Hospital

Brown COBRE for Neuromodulation (CCN)

A 2018 award from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) to Butler Hospital established the Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) on Neuromodulation or CCN. The mission of Butler’s CCN is to support innovative clinical research in neuromodulation (brain stimulation) and the career development of investigators in this field. The work couples brain stimulation methods with readouts of brain activity (e.g., using various neuroimaging, behavioral, and physiological assessment methods) in clinical or clinically-relevant populations. The CCN provides a platform for exchange of scientific insights and technical skills and mentoring so project leaders can move towards scientific independence.
