Claude Robert Cloninger, M.D. is Wallace Renard Professor of Psychiatry, Professor of Psychology and Genetics, and Director of the Center for Well-Being at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
Cloninger is best known for his pioneering research in the genetics and neurobiology of personality and personality disorders. He has developed two widely used tools for measuring personality: the Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI) and the Tridimensional Personality Questionnaire.
A leading expert in the science of well-being, in 2004 he published Feeling Good: The Science of Well-Being. He serves as Director of the Anthropedia Institute, which is the research branch of the Anthropedia Foundation. In collaboration with Anthropedia, he has helped develop the Know Yourself DVD series.
Cloninger has earned lifetime achievement awards from multiple academic and medical associations, and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences. He has authored or co-authored eight books and nearly four hundred articles, and is among the 100 most highly cited psychiatrists and psychologists recognized by ISI.
