From the 2017 Issue 2 ISSR Newsletter:
We are sad to announce that Dennis L. Murphy, M.D., former Chief of the Laboratory of Clinical Science at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Intramural Research Program (IRP), passed away on Saturday, September 23, 2017, after a brief illness.
Dr. Murphy was a giant in research geared toward understanding the etiology of, and improving treatments for, psychiatric disorders. In particular, he was known for his research exploring mood and anxiety disorders. His life’s work primarily focused on the serotonin neurotransmitter system and the serotonin transporter (SERT). Applying a sophisticated array of molecular, neurochemical and genetic approaches, Dr. Murphy made seminal contributions to the field. The ISSR recognized his exceptional career, by honoring him as the “Rapport Plenary Lecturer” at the 2008 meeting in Oxford, UK.
