Huda Akil, Ph.D., Co-Chair
Co-Director and Research Professor, MBNI Distinguished University Professor and Quarton Professor of Neurosciences, Huda Akil, Ph.D. is the Gardner Quarton Distinguished University Professor of Neuroscience and Psychiatry at the University of Michigan, and the co-Director of the Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience Institute (MBNI). Dr. Akil has made seminal contributions to the understanding of the neurobiology of emotions, including pain, anxiety, depression and substance abuse. Early on, she focused on the role of the endorphins and their receptors in pain and stress responsiveness. She and her colleagues provided the first physiological evidence for a role of endorphins in the brain; and showed that endorphins are activated by stress and cause pain inhibition, a phenomenon they termed Stress-Induced Analgesia. She defined how the postranslational processing of opioid precursors is modulated by stress, and demonstrated the coordinate actions of the neuropeptide products on behavior. Dr. Akil has investigated the molecular and neural mechanisms underlying stress reactivity and their relation to anxiety and depression. She demonstrated that social defeat in rodents activates unique neural pathways that resemble those altered in human depression. She and her colleagues have focused on the role of the steroid stress hormone receptors in emotionality, demonstrating the involvement of the mineralocorticoid receptor in human depression. Most recently her group created a transgenic mouse that overexpresses the glucocorticoid receptor selectively in forebrain and exhibits increased emotional lability and responsiveness to antidepressants, two features of bipolar (manic-depressive) illness. Dr. Akil is one of the key investigators in a major research consortium using genomic tools to uncover the pattern of gene expression associated with major depression and bipolar illness in human postmortem brains. Dr. Akil is the past President of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (1998) and the past President of the Society for Neuroscience (2004). She was elected as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2000. In 1994, she was elected to the membership of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academy of Science. More recently (2004), she was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
