SoHE Faculty Breaks Ground in Depression Research
Charles L. Raison, MD, was featured in a Clinical Pyschiatry News article last month. Through his research at UW-Madison, he has found a link between depression and inflammation. Dr. Raison, the Mary Sue and Mike Shannon Chair for Healthy Minds, Children & Families at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, has found that early-life adversity causes inflammation and predisposes people to depression. He continues to explore this “breakthrough” and analyze inflammation’s role in interfering with one’s mood.
