Katzenellenbogen Research Dockets.Justia Experience Co-Principal Investigator, Brief Couples Therapy at the End Of Life Study San Francisco Veteran's Administration Medical Hospital and UC-San Francisco. Co-PI: Associate Professor David Mohr, PhD. 06/2003-present. Designed and am implementing a pilot study to explore the interpersonal needs of couples in which one member has been diagnosed with a life-defining illness. Consists of assessments of interpersonal functioning as well as individual measures of quality of life for both members of the couple, as well as up to two sessions of counseling around practical and interpersonal issues concerning the end of life. Stanley Foundation Research Assistant, Vanderbilt University. 6/98-8/98. Advisors: Professors Fridolin Sulser and Richard Shelton. Research into molecular mechanisms of affective disorder involved elucidation of the differences between normal and depressed subjects in the receptor-mediated cAMPdependent cell-signaling apparatus. Significant reductions in the level of activity of Protein Kinase A, as well as in the concentration of its downstream phosphorylation target, CREB, were observed for depressed patients relative to normal controls. Robert A Welch Foundation Postdoctoral Associate, Trinity University. 1995-present. Advisor: D.R. Semmes Distinguished Professor Michael P. Doyle. Use of chiral Rh(II) and Cu(I) catalysts for regio- and stereocontrolled diazodecomposition reactions resulting in the formation of macrocyclic cyclopropane lactones of unprecedented size and complexity, firmly establishing this previously unknown methodology among those most effective for the rapid elaboration of stereodefined macrocyclic systems. Research Assistant, University of California, Berkeley. 1989-1995. Research with Professor Bartlett involved the computer-aided design and synthesis of a rigid, small-molecule template for -helix stabilization in short peptides. Results from these studies should help elucidate various thermodynamic contributions to -helix stability, and may be applied to the study of biological systems. Research Assistant, University of Illinois. 1986-1989. Research with Professor John A. Katzenellenbogen involved the synthesis and evaluation of a variety of fluorescent, nonsteroidal ligands targeted to the estrogen receptor in breast cancer tumors. Teaching Experience Attending Physician, SFVAMC; and Medical Director, PTSD Clinical Team, 20052007. Medication management clinic with medical students and psychiatry residents; attending in case presentations and case conferences with psychology externs, interns, and postdoctoral fellows as well as psychiatry residents. SUMMARY OF TEACHING HOURS; 2005-2006: 350 total hours of teaching Formal classes/courses: 20 Informal teaching hours: 300 Mentoring hours: 30 2006-2007: 430 total hours of teaching Formal classes/courses: 30 Informal teaching hours: 350 Mentoring hours: 50 TEACHING NARRATIVE I have been extensively involved in teaching and mentoring medical students, postdoctoral students, and psychiatry residents while at the SFVAMC. I have been hometeam supervisor for 1-2 PGY-2s in the PTSD Clinical Team, which has involved informal teaching about PTSD evaluation and treatment; broader supervision around psychopharmacologic and psychodynamic issues in treatment of psychiatric disorders; and career mentoring. I have also been actively involved in teaching of psychology interns, externs, and postdoctoral student; I have mentored several of these individuals around career decisions as well. I have supervised several PGY-2 and PGY-4 residents on their psychotherapy cases, both at the VA and as a volunteer supervisor through Langley-Porter Psychiatric Institute. I have taught medical students and psychology interns, externs, and postdoctoral students about psychopharmacologic management of PTSD during their rotation through the PTSD clinic at the VA. I have done this through formal presentation of material during required classes. In addition, while at the SFVAMC, I developed a curriculum for a weekly PTSD class for the veterans themselves. Through word-ofmouth, this class became quite popular among the veterans, typically drawing 25-30 participants each week. Acting Attending Physician, SFVA, 06/2004-present. Working with two attendings in GPOS evaluation clinic, I am responsible for teaching/mentoring several junior residents and medical students in evaluation and appropriate treatment of general psychiatric disorders in the veteran population. Anchor Attending, UCSF Medical School, 06/2004-present. Weekly meetings with medical students participating in their 8-week psychiatry/neurology rotation center on diagnosis and formulation in psychiatry, as well as on mentoring students who are considering careers in psychiatry.

St James Infirmary, 04/2003-2005. This free clinic is unique in its delivery of health care to the marginalized population of San Francisco's sex workers. It was started in 1999 and is operated entirely by current and former sex workers.
