"John Tallman"

John received his undergraduate degree and doctorate in biochemistry from Georgetown University in 1972 and rapidly gained preeminence in the field for his work on Tay-Sachs Disease in the laboratory of Roscoe O Brady at the NINCDS. Mentored in neuropharmacological research by Dr Julius Axelrod at the NIMH, Dr Tallman went on to become Chief of the Section on Biochemistry and Pharmacology in the Biological Psychiatry Branch of the NIMH. During this period, John focused his attentions on the role of neurotransmitter receptors in psychiatric disorders and treatments. In 1978, John and his longtime colleague, Dr Dorothy Gallager, elucidated the modulatory role of benzodiazepines on the GABA neurotransmitter system. Over the next 15 years, Dr Tallman continued his pioneering work investigating properties of the GABAA neurotransmitter receptor using pharmacological and molecular biological probes.
