UNC's Rubinow elected to Institute of Medicine
Date:10/19/2011

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. A professor in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine has been elected to the Institute of Medicine, considered one of the nation's highest honors for those in the fields of health and medicine.

David R. Rubinow, MD, Assad Meymandi Distinguished Professor and Chair of Psychiatry, is among the 65 new members announced by the institute on Monday (Oct. 17).

Rubinow is an internationally recognized expert in the evaluation and treatment of women with mood disorders that occur during periods of hormonal change. He is also the founder of the UNC Center for Women's Mood Disorders, which recently opened an inpatient unit for women with moderate to severe postpartum depression (PPD). The 5-bed Perinatal Psychiatry Inpatient Unit is the first of its kind in the United States.

He came to UNC after a long and distinguished 26-year career at the National Institute of Mental Health in Bethesda, Md. There he started as a staff psychiatrist in 1979 and advanced through a series of positions of increasing responsibility, culminating with his becoming the Clinical Director of NIMH in 1987 and the founding chief of the NIMH's Behavioral Endocrinology Branch in 1996. He held both positions until 2005, when he accepted his current appointment at UNC.

Rubinow has received numerous awards for his research, his clinical supervision and training and his scientific administration. He has also authored or co-authored more than 350 scientific publications.
