Sarah Clinton, PhD

Dr. Clinton is in her fourth year as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurobiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). She received her PhD in 2004 at the University of Michigan where she studied neuroanatomical and molecular abnormalities involved the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. As a post-doctoral fellow, she developed a rat model that permits analysis of biological mechanisms of individual differences in emotionality. Her research program aims to understand neurobiological factors that shape the developing brain to influence risk for psychiatric disorders like depression and anxiety. Her laboratory utilizes a multidisciplinary approach, combining molecular, neuroanatomical, and behavioral approaches in model animals to address such questions. Dr. Clinton’s work has been funded by a L’Oreal Women in Science Fellowship and National Institute of Mental Health K99-R00 Pathway to Independence Award.
