Combination Treatment with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Ketamine for Treatment-resistant Depression
You’re invited to join the Clinical TMS Society for this installment of our Grand Round Webinar Series: Combination Treatment with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Ketamine for Treatment-resistant Depression
- To understand the literature on the mechanisms of action supporting combination treatment with TMS and ketamine
- To identify clinical situation in which combination treatment with TMS and ketamine may be warranted.
- To recognize where combination treatment with TMS and ketamine may fit in a treatment algorithm for medication refractory depression.

SPEAKER: C. Sophia Albott, MD
Dr. C. Sophia Albott is the Deputy Vice Chair for Research and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at the University of Minnesota. Her research focuses on novel interventions (ketamine, transcranial magnetic stimulation, cognitive training) for treating mood (depression) and trauma-related disorders (PTSD). She published the first study of repeated ketamine infusions in veterans with PTSD and currently leads the first randomized controlled trial of repeated ketamine infusions for comorbid PTSD and depression. Dr. Albott’s research uses neuroimaging techniques (MRI) to evaluate structural and functional brain abnormalities in trauma-related disorders (PTSD, depression, secondary traumatic stress). She also established and leads the Ketamine Registry of Minnesota (KaRMa) which is a joint venture between the University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic tracking long-term outcomes of patients receiving ketamine for depression. She maintains a part-time clinic at the MHealth Outpatient Neuromodulation Clinic where she also participates in clinical research translating her work on the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying disordered responses to trauma. She has received awards from the NIH and the University of Minnesota Medical School, and is currently funded through a K23 Career Development Award from the National Institute of Mental Health.
