The Resnick Family Foundation has pledged $2 million to establish the Muriel Harris Chair in Geriatric Psychiatry in the Jane and Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA.

This generous gift was made by Stewart and Lynda Resnick in memory of Mrs. Resnick’s mother, Muriel Harris, and in appreciation for the care she received at the Stewart and Lynda Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA. The purpose of the chair is to yield investigative advances that will translate into optimum care for patients.

The chair will be awarded to a Semel Institute senior clinician, who also holds an academic appointment in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. This candidate will have demonstrated clinical expertise, research activities and a superior teaching ability in geriatric psychiatry.
