Marin Science Seminar: The Science and Treatment of Depression with Tobias Marton, MD PhD of SCSF and VAMC SF

Join us for a dIscussion on treatment approaches for Major Depressive Illness by a UCSF and VAMC SF researcher and psychiatrist.

Dr. Marton grew up in Berkeley, California. He received his BA in Molecular and Cellular Biology with an emphasis in neurobiology at UC Berkeley and attended the Medical Scientist Training Program at UC San Diego School of Medicine where he completed his MD and PhD in Neuroscience. After medical school, he went on to complete his residency training in psychiatry at UCSF and subsequently conducted research as a fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Vikaas Sohal studying the neural circuitry of the prefrontal cortex and how it may go awry in severe mental illness. Currently he is a faculty member in the UCSF Department of Psychiatry and provides clinical services at both San Francisco VA Medical Center and UCSF Medical Center. His current area of interest is in using neurostimulation techniques such as ECT and rTMS, as well as other novel neuroscience-based strategies, to treat mood disorders including major depression and bipolar disorder.
