Herman Honored by College For Research

James Herman, PhD, Donald C. Harrison Professor and vice chair of basic research in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, was honored by the College of Medicine Thursday at a special event for recently being named a Distinguished Research Professor (STEMM) by the university. Forty colleagues along with Dean William Ball, MD, senior vice president for health affairs, and Melanie Cushion, PhD, senior associate dean for research in the college, were on hand to celebrate Herman’s research in the areas of the neurobiology of stress—how the brain processes stressful information—and the physiological actions that may result. 

Cushion and Ball presented Herman with a framed picture of CARE/Crawley Building as a keepsake. Herman shared his passion for research during a short presentation. Herman is director of the Stress Neurobiology Laboratory and UC Neurobiology Research Center. He also serves as an associate director of the University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute.
