Joshua Gordon Named NIMH Director
Joshua Gordon
The next director of the US National Institute of Mental Health will be Joshua Gordon of Columbia University. NIH Director Francis Collins made the announcement today, citing the wide range of disorders that Gordon's laboratory research touches on, as well as the fact that he has maintained his connection to mental illness with his private psychiatric practice. As NIMH director, Gordon will oversee the largest psychiatric research budget in the world: more than $1.2 billion dollars in extra- and
intramural research funding. He plans to take up his post in September, replacing Tom Insel, the longest-serving NIMH director. Collins thanked Bruce Cuthbert for guiding the institute as acting director since last fall.
