Throughout his career, Dr. Pine has engaged in research focusing on the epidemiology, biology and treatment of brain and behavior disorders in children and adolescents. His areas of expertise include biological and pharmacological aspects of mood, anxiety and behavioral disorders in children; the biological commonalities and differences among psychiatric disorders of children, adolescents and adults; and the interfaces between psychiatric and medical disorders. Currently, he and his group are examining the degree to which mood and anxiety disorders in children and adolescents are associated with underlying abnormalities in the amygdala, prefrontal cortex and other brain regions.

Prior to joining the NIMH, Dr. Pine spent 10 years at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University.
