Academic Honors

In Memoriam—Shortly before his death on January 12, 2017, Martin Katz, Ph.D., was conferred the 2016 Paul Hoch Distinguished Service Award from the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP), for his significant contributions to the ACNP. Dr. Katz devoted his 50-plus-year career to developing tools and theoretical understanding of antidepressants, and to studying their mechanism of action among patients clinically treated for depressive disorders. He was among the pioneers who proposed that psychotherapy and electric shock treatment alone cannot cure depression-related disorders, and recommended an approach to treatment that used combined therapies to the best effect. Dr. Katz also developed the Katz Adjustment Scale (KAS), which measures behavioral changes in patients; the tool also provided a means for video recording patients to monitor the effects of treatment. His work emphasized the role of behavior as a key determinant in the treatment of depression-related disorders when using drug therapy and psychotherapy together. While at Einstein, Dr. Katz was professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences for 20 years, including a decade as a chief of the division of psychology before retiring in 2004. A memorial for Dr. Katz will take place on Saturday, March 18, 2017, in Washington, DC.
