Academic Bio

Deborah Yurgelun-Todd completed her doctorate in Psychology from Harvard University and subsequently trained at McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She serves as Director of the Salt Lake City Mental Illness Research and Clinical Center (MIRECC) for the VISN 19 VA Health Care System and Director of the Salt Lake City VA Advanced Fellowship Program in Mental Illness Research and Treatment. Her training in neuroscience and psychopathology has led to the application of multimodal imaging approaches aimed at identifying neurobiological bases of major psychiatric disorders. She has received funding for her research from NIMH, NIDA, CDC, CIA, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Her recent work has focused on understanding the neurobiologic basis of impulsivity, mood regulation and decision-making as risk factors for behavioral disorders. She served as an author on more than 250 publications and is a standing member on both NIH and VA grant review committees.
