Michael P. Milham, MD, PhD
Director, Center for the Developing Brain; Senior Research Scientist; Pediatric Psychopharmacologist
Child Mind Institute
Michael P. Milham, MD, PhD, is an internationally recognized neuroscience researcher, a gifted and caring clinician, and the founding director of the Center for the Developing Brain at the Child Mind Institute. Dr. Milham is one of our nation's most prolific scientists, with over 60 articles published since 2000, and an average of about 10 publications per year during the past three years. He has published in the most scientifically respected journals, including the American Journal of Psychiatry, Journal of Neuroscience, Biological Psychiatry, and the Archive of General Psychiatry. Dr. Milham's innovative research techniques signal a sea change in the field and a revolution in discovery science.
Dr. Milham's research interests include: exploring the neural basis of psychiatric disorders such as ADHD, mood and anxiety disorders, and autism; investigating how functional and structural connectivity in the brain may underlie certain types of psychiatric disorders; and seeking to chart the course of healthy brain development in childhood and adolescence. His current projects include the International Neuroimaging Data-sharing Initiative (INDI), ADHD 200, a number of studies underway at the Nathan S. Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research, the Child Mind Institute Biobank initiative, and the Endeavor Scientist initiative.
