This year includes several important new faculty appointments in developmental psychiatry. Douglas Novins, MD, became Director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Cy and Lyndia Harvey Professor of Child Psychiatry. Dr. Novins specializes in Native American mental health treatment and research and is an editor of the Journal of American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. He will direct the services at Children’s Hospital Colorado and work with our child and adolescent psychiatry faculty at the University of Colorado Hospital and Denver Health Medical Center. We are especially pleased to have an expanded inpatient service and new outpatient services for children and youth at Denver Health. Marianne Wamboldt, MD, our former Division Director, became the Leslie and William Vollbracht Family Chair in Stress and Anxiety Disorders Professor of Child Psychiatry and continues her research on holistic treatment of childhood anxiety disorders. Paula Riggs, MD, also a child and adolescent psychiatrist, became Director of the Division of Substance Dependence. Her interests include treatment for adolescent substance dependence and comorbid depression or ADHD. Thomas Crowley, MD, the Division’s founder, is continuing his research regarding the relationship between conduct disorder and substance dependence in adolescence. Our department’s emphasis on developmental psychiatry will also be advanced by the recent recruitment of Amanda J. Law, PhD, who joined us as Dr. Nancy Gary Professor of Child Psychiatry. She is one of the nation’s leading molecular neurobiologists, with a focus on neuregulin and its role in the developmental precursors to schizophrenia.
