Gerard Sanacora, MD, PhD

New treatment options for mood disorders are under investigation, including the novel class of glutamatergic drugs.

Although we have made great strides in the treatment of mood disorders, there are still patients who are nonresponsive or do not achieve remission. As such, new treatment options are under investigation, including the novel class of glutamatergic drugs. So what’s new with this class of medications?

We invited Dr Gerard Sanacora, Professor of Psychiatry and Director of Yale Depression Research Program at Yale School of Medicine, to talk about targeting glutamate in the quest for novel treatments for mood disorders. Dr Sanacora is scheduled to present on this topic on Friday, November 9, at the 2012 US Psychiatric and Mental Health Congress in San Diego.
