Dr. Scott L. Rauch ’82 is President and Psychiatrist in Chief of McLean Hospital, Chair of Psychiatry and Mental Health for the Partners Health Care System and a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. On Friday, February 8, he will visit the Loeb Center to present a catered "Lunch & Learn" event about his career path to current students.
Dr. Rauch's principal research interests relate to neuroimaging and the neurobiology of anxiety disorders. He received his undergraduate degree with honors in Neuroscience from Amherst College in 1982 and attended medical school at the University of Cincinnati. He completed his residency training and a chief residency in Psychiatry as well as a Radiology Research Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in affiliation with Harvard Medical School. Dr. Rauch served on the faculty at MGH for more than 15 years, during which he founded the Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program, the Psychiatric Neurotherapeutics Program and the Psychiatric Neuroscience Division. He was appointed to his current leadership roles at McLean and Partners in 2006.
Most recently, Dr. Rauch has served on a series of committees related to military health for the National Academies of Science, Institute of Medicine. He is also currently a member of the DSM-V Anxiety Disorders Workgroup and President of the Society of Biological Psychiatry.
Register to attend in Handshake. Lunch will be provided.
Seminar Title: "The structural mechanism of CaMKII regulation: from fertilization to encoding long-term memory."
Abstract: Ca2+-calmodulin dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) is a crucial oligomeric enzyme in neuronal and cardiac signaling, fertilization and immunity. Work in the Stratton lab is focused on understanding the role of this fascinating enzyme in different tissues. We have used RNA sequencing to determine which transcripts are present and we are characterizing these different variants in terms of their activation profiles. To facilitate our studies in cells, we have developed a novel, substrate-based, genetically-encoded sensor for CaMKII activity, FRESCA (FRET-based Sensor for CaMKII Activity), which has allowed us to monitor CaMKII activity in live cells under various conditions. We hope that by gaining an understanding of CaMKII in vitro and in cells, we will be able to better understand medical conditions in which it is implicated, such as memory deficiencies and infertility.
