Event Information

Join us for GW Biomedical Cross-disciplinary Seminar Series: Connecting Academic Research & Inquiry Across Disciplines—a series of seminars that explore a new cross-disciplinary topic each year. For the inaugural year, the focus is "Inflammation in Chronic Disease: Cause, Consequence, or Both?" and will address both the treatment and prevention of chronic inflammatory diseases.

The lecture is on "The Emerging Role of the Immune System in Depression and Other Psychiatric Disorders" with Andrew H. Miller, MD, William P. Timmie Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences; vice chair of Research, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences; director of Behavioral Immunology Program; and co-leader of the Cancer Prevention and Control at the Winship Cancer Institute at the Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Miller is an internationally recognized leader in the area of brain-immune interactions as they relate to depression in medically healthy as well as medically ill patients including patients with cancer.

The seminar series is supported by departmental funding and the generosity of Ellen J. LaBelle, MD `74, associate clinical professor of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and John Pan, MD, clinical professor, Department of Clinical Research and Leadership, and founding medical director, Office of Integrative Medicine and Health.
