In broad terms, the work of Dr. Tamminga and her colleagues seeks to define predictors and understand the mechanism of treatment response; to crease and refine biomarkers, behavioral assessment and genetic variants that characterize psychotic disorders; to evaluate existing therapies for new indications; and, in collaboration with academic, industry and regulatory agencies, to hasten the development of more effective new treatments for psychotic disorders.
Prior to joining the faculty at UT Southwestern, Dr. Tamminga worked at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke (NINCDS) and the University of Maryland, Maryland Psychiatric Research Center. She co-founded the International Congress on Schizophrenia Research and continues to direct its activities.
