Research Fellowships


Many of the researchers in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences work in the Semel Institute, which is a unique organization that hosts research into modern behavioral neuroscience, social policy and human culture. The bulk of this research is within its Research, Integrative and Clinical Centers, although the Institute also supports initiatives in clinical care at the UCLA Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital.


The diversity of projects integrates researchers from departments and divisions of: Anthropology; Chemistry; Genetics; Neurobiology; Neurology; Neurosurgery; Neuropathology; Pediatrics; Pharmacology; and, Psychology. Our portfolio of research studies, projects and programs is vast ranging from the genetic molecule up to human communities. This work is supported by our various cores and labs providing assistance in the fields of neuroimaging, biostatistics and mass spectrometry. The opportunity for collaboration within the categories of science and across disciplinary lines both within UCLA and with bodies across the globe is unique in UCLA and possibly one of the most comprehensive facilities worldwide in the fields of psychiatry and neuroscience.
