Sen is the Frances and Kenneth Eisenberg Professor of Depression and Neurosciences and Associate Chair for Research and Faculty Development in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan. He received his MD and PhD from the University of Michigan, completed a psychiatry residency at the Yale University and returned to Michigan as faculty in 2009. The Sen Lab’s Intern Health Study is a longitudinal cohort study that assesses stress and mood in medical interns. In addition to understanding physician depression, Dr. Sen utilizes physician training as a model to better understand how stress leads to depression in general. The work has advanced our understanding of the biology of depression under stress and influenced medical education policies put forward by healthcare institutions and the ACGME. Sen has received many awards including the Seymour Lustman Award, the American Psychological Association/Lilly Resident Research Award, the NIMH BRAINS Award and the U-M Endowment for the Basic Sciences.
