Donaghue Women's Health Investigator Program awards grants to three at Yale

New Haven, Conn. The Ethel F. Donaghue Women's Health Investigator Program, administered by Women's Health Research at Yale, has granted its 2004 Program Awards to three Yale researchers. The program offers grants to full-time Yale affiliated investigators for new research on women's health and on the sex-specific factors in health and disease.

The awardees include Ronald S. Duman, professor of psychiatry and pharmacology and director of the Abraham Ribicoff Research Facilities; Deborah D. Proctor, M.D., associate professor of medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine; and Christopher H. van Dyck, M.D., associate professor of psychiatry (geropsychiatry) and neurobiology.

"Again this year, the quality of the submissions we evaluated speaks to the significant work going on at Yale, and to the desire on the part of researchers to factor gender into their investigations in order to improve outcomes," said Carolyn M. Mazure, director of Women's Health Research at Yale. "Our program's research agenda is designed to generate information that is useful to women and healthcare providers, and to serve as a model for wider application of innovative interdisciplinary research."

Duman's study will explore the neurobiological mechanisms that underlie postpartum depression (PPD), which poses a highly significant health risk for women as well as their children. Although there is evidence suggesting that the dramatic fluctuation in hormone levels experienced shortly after birth can contribute to PPD, the neurobiology that underlies this disorder has not been identified. Duman will address this issue by conducting a series of integrated studies in an animal model of PPD. The findings of these studies will be used for expanding research approaches to PPD and for developing novel treatment strategies.

Proctor will generate pilot data on 20 women with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu Syndrome, who
