    Biography
      Dr. Anthony A. Grace is a Distinguished Professor of Neuroscience and a Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA. He received his Ph.D. from Yale University School of Medicine with Dr. Benjamin S. Bunney and had postdoctoral training with Dr. Rodolfo Llinas in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at New York University School of Medicine. Dr. Grace has been involved in translational research related to the dopamine system for over 30 years. His early work pioneered the mode of action of antipsychotic drugs, and the identification and characterization of dopamine-containing neurons, and was the first to provide a means to quantify their activity state and pattern in a way that is the standard in the literature. His current work involves novel treatments for schizophrenia and its prevention, the role of dopamine in anhedonia and affective disorders, and the mode of action of ketamine and novel antidepressant drugs. Dr. Grace has received several awards for his research, including the Paul Janssen Schizophrenia Research Award and the Lilly Basic Scientist Award from the International College of Neuropsychopharmacology, the Efron Award from the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, as well as a NIMH MERIT award, a Distinguished Investigator award from the National Alliance for Research in Schizophrenia and Depression, the Judith Silver Memorial Investigator Award from the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and appointment as a Distinguished Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh. He is also a past member of the governing council of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology and is on the editorial board fornumerous leading journals in the field.
