Description

Kerry Ressler, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Center for Behavioral Neuroscience, Emory University School of Medicine

Kerry Ressler earned a bachelor’s degree focusing on molecular biology at MIT in 1990, and received an M.D. and Ph.D. from Harvard Medical School in 1997. In 1992 at Harvard, he was the first student of Dr. Linda Buck, helping to identify the molecular organization of the odorant receptor family in mice, for which she shared the Nobel Prize with Richard Axel in 2004.

Ressler's laboratory examines the molecular biology and neural circuitry underlying the learning and unlearning of fear in a variety of behavioral and genetic approaches.
