The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Iowa is committed to transforming the understanding, prevention, detection, and treatment of major mental illness through its extensive research initiatives.

Using the most advanced methods and technologies available, we have made and continue to make significant discoveries on a range of psychiatric disorders and disciplines including aging disorders and dementias, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders, psychotic disorders, substance use disorders, epidemiology, genetics, health services, neuroimaging, neuropsychology, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, consultation-liaison psychiatry, emergency psychiatry, medical psychiatry, and telepsychiatry.

We take great pride in our faculty's many contributions to the field, and our research continues to be cutting edge.
