Kerry Ressler, MD, PhD

Department of Neuroscience

Kerry Ressler, M.D., Ph.D. received a BS in molecular biology at MIT in 1990, and received an M.D., Ph.D. from Harvard Medical School in 1997. In 1992 at Harvard, he was the first student of Dr. Linda Buck (Nobel Prize, 2004), helping to identify the molecular organization of odorant receptors in mice. He is an active physician-scientist whose work focuses on translational research bridging molecular neurobiology with human genetic research on fear and anxiety disorders. His clinical research focuses on the genetics and phenotypes that underlie Posttraumatic Stress Disorder with the goal of understanding the molecular mechanisms that contribute to fear-related disorders.
