Brandon Kitay graduated from the MD/PhD Program at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and completed residency training in adult psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine, Neuroscience Research Training Program (NRTP) where he developed specific interests in neuromodulation, experimental therapeutics, and clinical trial design for treatment refractory mood disorders. He served as Chief Resident of the Interventional Psychiatry Service (IPS) at Yale-New Haven Hospital developing clinical expertise in ECT, rTMS, and ketamine therapy. He also worked as a research fellow with Dr. Gerard Sanacora at the Yale Depression Research Program as a sub-investigator for several federal funded and industry sponsored clinical trials (including those that led to the FDA approval of esketamine). Clinically, he has worked to expand patient access to mental health resources and participated in implementing the first collaborative care model (CoCM) for depression and anxiety management within primary care at Yale. He joins the faculty of Emory University as an Assistant Professor as well as the Director of Behavioral Health Integration where he will work to implement a similar model throughout the network of Emory Healthcare primary care clinics. He will also continue his work in the field of "Interventional Psychiatry," working with the neuromodulation group in administering ECT and ketamine/esketamine therapy. He also hopes to continue his work in medical education around neuromodulation techniques, addressing both knowledge gaps and stigma towards enhancing patient access.

Joshua Siegel, MD
Psychiatrist
Washington University Saint Louis

My professional area of interest is in developing and understanding novel fast-acting psychopharmacological agents to treat psychiatric illness. I am currently involved in neuroimaging studies of ketamine, psilocybin, allopregnanolone and similar molecules. This is the convergence of my interests in systems neuroscience, neurotransmitters, synaptic plasticity, psychiatry and consciousness. The only thing that excites me as much as the prospect of being a part of the accelerating field of neuroscience is the prospect that I might get to use some of these advances to change the life of a human being.

I currently direct the Interventional Psychiatry and Neuromodulation Research Program in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences at Wayne State University School of Medicine and treat patients with medication resistant mood disorders. Our research is focused on developing “physiometrics”, psycho-physiologic biomarkers that inform real-world psychiatric practice.
