Talk Title: Lessons Learned from the past 30 Years of Research in Mental Health
Abstract: Dr. Steven Siegel, Franz Alexander Chair in Psychiatry, Professor and Chair, Psychiatry and the Behavioral Sciences Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California Talk Title: Lessons Learned from the past 30 Years of Research in Mental Health Abstract: Siegel will describe work he has done over the past 30 years. Topics will range from biodegradable polymer-based implants developed in his lab at Penn and now being used clinically under the auspices of Teva Uzedy. Additionally, he will discuss studies measuring signal processing of brain activity bridging the pathophysiology and etiology of psychosis using EEG and ECog in mice. He will also address collaborations both at Penn and USC in engineering, spanning biomedical engineering and material science, as well as his work as chief wellness officer for USCs health system, including a randomized control trial to understand healthcare professional wellness. Lastly, he will describe work in his department leading a massive proactive adaptive technology mental health screening tool for USC students including its impact on trainees in engineering.
