Psychiatry Students Awarded For Research

Tiffany Farchione, a fourth-year medical student, and Lance Swick, a second-year graduate student in the cellular and clinical neurosciences doctoral training program, are the winners of the 2001 Dean R. Asselin, MD, Prize in Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences from Wayne State University.


Tiffany Farchione

Farchione took a year off from her medical studies to enroll in the Master of Science in Psychiatry Program, which she recently completed. She was awarded the Asselin prize for her masters thesis titled: “Proton Spectroscopic Imaging of the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex in Pediatric Major Depressive Disorders.”

This research has been presented at several national meetings and Farchione received the New Investigators Award for her presentation at the 2001 New Clinical Drug Evaluation Unit annual meeting sponsored by the National Institutes of Mental Health.


Lance Swick

Swick was awarded the Asselin Prize for his research paper titled: “The Interaction of GTP Cyclohydrolase I and GTP Cyclohydrolase Feedback Regulatory Protein Can Be Detected Using the Yeast Two-Hybrid System.” This research was presented at the Symposium on the Chemistry and Biology of Pteridines and Folates sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. 

The Dean R. Asselin, MD, Endowed Prize in Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences was established to stimulate psychiatry residents, medical students and graduate students, to conduct studies in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences and to present their work at scientific meetings and publish in scholarly journals.

The winners will each receive a $2500 cash award.
