Expert biography

Christine Ann Denny is Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurobiology in Psychiatry at Columbia University and a Research Scientist V in the Division of Systems Neuroscience at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, New York, NY, USA.

Dr Denny studies, and has published widely on, the neural basis of learning and memory in disease states, such as in depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, aging and Alzheimer’s disease. Specifically, she created an activity-dependent tagging murine line, the ArcCreERT2 mice, which allows for the permanent labelling of individual memories. In addition, Dr Denny’s laboratory is developing small molecule compounds, similar to ketamine, to protect against stress-induced psychiatric disease. Dr Denny is an associate member of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, serving on several committees, as well as being an associate editor of Neuronal Signaling and a journal reviewer for journals in neurobiology, neuropharmacology and psychiatry.
