From Plants to Pills: The Evolution of the Antidepressant

By Dr. Daniel Barto, UNM Health Sciences Center

November 14, 2018 • 6:30pm – 8pm

The legacy of medicinal drug consumption continues to this present day--although in a slightly different form. Dr. Daniel Barto is a researcher at the UNM Health Sciences Center in the Department of Neuropathology. He earned his B.A. at the Univ. of Chicago and M.Ed at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and PhD at the UNM in Psychology.
