Our research is aimed at understanding the causes, course of illness and outcomes of mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder and depression. Our work is interdisciplinary and uses many approaches to answer these questions, including neuroimaging, sex-informed medicine, and stress neuroendocrinology. Specific goals include developing biomarkers to predict treatment response and characterizing neurobiological mechanisms leading to different illness trajectories. We are located in the Department of Psychiatry at Brigham & Women’s Hospital. Both remote and in-person student opportunities are available. The specific project is flexible within the scope of the lab's focus and based on student strengths and interests, but in general will include participation in lab meetings and events, formulating scientific questions, training on data collection methods, hands-on data processing and analysis, and engaging in scientific communication through presentations.
