Drawing on almost four decades of psychiatric research experience Dr Rosenthal will discuss the elements required for innovation including the value of “taking a flyer,” a bold, high-risk, high-yield step that can significantly advance a field. He will refer specifically to his work with seasonal affective disorder and light therapy, Transcendental Meditation for post-traumatic stress disorder, and Botox for depression.

Dr Norman Rosenthal is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University Medical School in Washington D.C. A highly cited researcher, he has published more than 200 scholarly papers. He was the first physician to describe and name Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and pioneered the use of light therapy as a treatment. More recently he has researched the use of Botox for Depression and Transcendental Meditation for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He has authored or co-authored 9 popular books, including several best sellers. His most recent book, Super Mind, reached number one in the Washington Post best sellers list.
