Michael R. Irwin, MD, University of California Los Angeles

Virtueller Vortrag im Rahmen des Wissenschaftlichen Kolloquiums der Klinik für Psychiatrie, Campus Benjamin Franklin, Wintersemester 2020/2021

Dr. Michael R. Irwin is one of the world’s foremost experts on the psychoneuroimmunological pathways by which psychosocial and behavioral factors influence health and disease. He holds the Norman Cousins Distinguished Professorship in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Science at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). He is the Vice Chair of Research for the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Science at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, Director of the Cousins Center for Psychoneuroimmunology at the UCLA Semel Institute, and Director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at the UCLA Semel Institute and the UCLA Healthcare System. His current research aims to understand the reciprocal interactions between the immune- and central nervous systems, and the role of sleep disturbance on the molecular and cellular inflammatory signaling pathways that influence depression- and physical health risk. Dr. Irwin’s research has broadly integrated data from laboratory animal studies, epidemiological studies, clinical naturalistic history- and prospective studies, experimental studies, and randomized controlled trials that have employed both behavioral- and mind-body approaches.
