its Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Pitman’s research into the psychobiology of
PTSD spans 30 years. He has 250 publications in the general psychiatric and

research interest is whether medications administered at the time of traumatic
memory reactivation can weaken such memories through reconsolidation
blockade, which represents a potential novel treatment for PTSD.
