Dr. Mary Kay Lobo: Developing Antidepressants that Build the Brain

On Brain Waves this week, join One Mind President Brandon Staglin for a talk with Mary Kay Lobo, PhD, a 2016 One Mind / Janssen Rising Star Translational Research Award winner, on her innovative progress toward developing safer, more effective depression medications. Audience questions are welcome.

Dr. Lobo is Associate Professor of Anatomy, Neurobiology and Psychiatry at University of Maryland School of Medicine, and her work has appeared in numerous recent news articles. She is an expert in the basic science of depression and addiction, and is also engaging to talk with. The Q&A period is now closed–big thanks to Dr. Lobo and all who participated!

You can learn more about Dr. Lobo’s research on her Research Updates page.

Be sure to watch and participate again on July 3, 2018 at noon PDT for an interview with Jeffrey Sparr of the PeaceLove Foundation on artistic expression to build mental wellness and public awareness.

    1. This is a great question. Most of our works is in males since our stress model can only be performed in males. However, some of our data indicates that the molecules we are studying can underlie depressive-like behavior in both males and females. We have recently established a female stress model and will start testing the inhibitors of these molecules in females.

  1. Hi Everyone! Thank you to the audience for watching.
    And thank you for the comments and questions. Please post more questions. I am happy to answer them all. – Mary Kay
