Helen Kales, MD

Dr. Kales serves as Chair of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of California Davis. Prior to this, she was a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan and a Research Investigator at the Center for Clinical Management Research and the Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center in the VA Ann Arbor Health System. She is the founding Director of the UM Program for Positive Aging (PPA), established in 2009, which moved to UC Davis with her transition in 2019. As a fellowship-trained, board-certified geriatric psychiatrist, her research program is directly informed by her clinical work and experiences with patients, families, providers, and systems to diminish the barriers to effective and high-quality care for older patients with mental health issues and/or dementia and their caregivers. She is recognized as a national and international expert in outcomes related to later-life depression, the risks of the use of antipsychotic and other psychotropic medications in older adults, and in researching ways to improve dementia care. In recognition of her work in the field of dementia care, Dr. Kales was named to the standing Lancet Global Commission on Dementia Care in 2015 and has been continuously federally-funded since 2004, serving as principal investigator on nine federally-funded grants. In her work with junior investigators, she currently mentors three faculty with NIA career development funding.

Ian Kratter, MD, Ph.D.


Dr. Kratter is an adult psychiatrist, fellowship-trained neuropsychiatrist, and clinical assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine. He is also the Director of Invasive Technologies at the Stanford Brain Stimulation Laboratory.

His clinical interests include the psychiatric and cognitive aspects of movement disorders like Parkinson's and Tourette's and depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and non-invasive and invasive neuromodulation for neuropsychiatric illness.

His research interests focus on improving outcomes and understanding the mechanisms of neuromodulatory treatments. This includes both clinical and more mechanistic studies using techniques like repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and deep brain stimulation in combination with neuroimaging and electrophysiology. He is a co-investigator for such studies focusing on obsessive-compulsive disorder, major depressive disorder, and acute suicidal ideation.
