Academic Appointment

Clinical Assistant Professor (Affiliated) of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences,
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine

Bio

Dr. Black started working in severe mental illness and suicide in 1978 with the Santa Barbara County Psychiatric Mobile Emergency Team. He was the director and only paid staff for a 24 -hour suicide hotline. In a fit of grandiosity he obtained a PhD in Social & Personality Psychology at UCSC thinking to bring the insights of Social Psych to the study of suicide.  After graduate school he went straight to Jackson Mississippi for one big dose of culture shock and 20 years of being a professor, at  Millsaps College. Finding that he was barred from doing research with actually suicidal people by every IRB he ever applied to ( including the one he chaired) because he was not a licensed clinical psychologist he went back to grad school for a clinical PhD at Jackson State University. It turns out that  the second dissertation is much easier than the first one. After a post-doc at VA Palo Alto and a short stint teaching at CSU Stanislaus he joined the staff of the VAPA Inpatient Psychiatry Unit  520 Cypress in 2010 where he has been happy ever since (mostly).

Academic Appointment

Clinical Professor (Affiliated) of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences,
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine

Bio

Dr. Salehi is a neurobiologist working on identifying molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer's disease and Down syndrome. In this process, ​he uses pre-clinical experiments to test the effects of already-approved drugs in improving cognitive function in the mouse models with hippocampal degeneration. In 2010, he received the World Technology Award for the innovative use of mouse models of Down syndrome to identify genes responsible for cognitive disabilities. Recently, he found that increasing beta2 adrenergic signaling would improve cognitive function in a mouse model of Down syndrome. Accordingly, in a collaborative study, he is testing whether already-approved beta2-adrenergic receptor agonists can indeed improve cognitive function and reduce the severity of pathology in individuals with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease.
