Devanand S. Manoli
Associate Professor
Department of Psychiatry and Weill Institute for Neuroscience

Education: MD & PhD, Stanford University School of Medicine, 2007


Dev received his B.S. in Biology and B.A. in French Literature, and his M.D. and Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Stanford University. Dev's graduate work focused on understanding the neural basis for male sexual behavior in Drosophila, specified by the male-specific Fruitless transcription factors. He then moved to UCSF for his postdoctoral work and his residency in Psychiatry and fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. As a postdoc, Dev developed tools for molecular genetics in prairie voles.

Dev's interests lie in understanding the neural, molecular, and genetic bases of affiliation and social attachment, and how they can be disrupted in neuropsychiatric disorders. He continues to practice as a child psychiatrist in the UCSF Early Psychosis Clinic.
