Among his many responsibilities, neuroscientist Daniel Bitran coordinates the nine-week Holy Cross Summer Science Research Program. These sought-after opportunities are supported by private donors and profit and not-for-profit organizations, including the Beckman Scholars program, the Clare Booth Luce Scholarships for women in the physical sciences and other faculty-secured grants.
“Summer is the time to focus on my research program,” says Bitran, who studies psychiatric disorders. “There are fewer competing demands on my time in contrast to the academic year.”
Bitran is interested in understanding how various psychiatric disorders, including anxiety, depression and schizophrenia, are represented in altered brain function. He has published nearly 40 papers on the effects of gonadal steroids, or sex hormones, on brain function and behavior.
