The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation celebrated 25 years of Empowering Research for Productive Lives and honored eight extraordinary scientists at its Annual National Awards Dinner in New York City on October 26.

Karen Dineen Wagner, M.D., Ph.D., was one of two winners of the Colvin Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Mood Disorders Research this year. Dr. Wagner is the Marie B. Gale Professor and Vice Chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and Director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. An internationally recognized expert in the treatment of childhood mood disorders, Dr. Wagner has pioneered studies of childhood bipolar and unipolar mood disorders. Her work has helped in the development and implementation of the most optimal approaches to childhood bipolar disorder, increasingly recognized as a common, difficult to treat and often highly disabling disorder.

Dr. Wagner was selected through a peer-review process of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation Scientific Council, a volunteer group of 138 pre-eminent mental health researchers. These annual prizes are amongst the most prestigious recognitions possible in psychiatric research.
