Dr. Jonathan Morrow, M.D., Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry. He completed the Medical Scientist training program at the University of Michigan in 2006 earning a dual M.D./Ph.D. He completed his general Residency in Psychiatry at the University of Michigan and served as Chief Resident of the Ann Arbor VA from 2009-2010. Through his Ph.D. work, he gained valuable experience in formulating, planning, and conducting rigorous behavioral experiments using animal models. While in residency, Dr. Morrow developed a behavioral, animal model that can be used to investigate the neurobiological basis of vulnerability to comorbid addiction and PTSD, which is an increasingly prevalent problem and often recalcitrant to current treatments. The model can also be used to investigate the contributions of genetics and early-life experiences to vulnerability to psychopathology. Dr. Morrow hopes to adapt the model for screening human subjects such that potential treatments and preventative strategies can be tested in both humans and animals.
