Welcome to the RAD Lab!

We are a team of researchers dedicated to conducting research about adolescent mental health. Our research aims to advance understanding of the biology of mood disorders (e.g. depression and bipolar disorder) in adolescents, and to test how new investigational treatments may work to restore health in young people. 

Current Research Opportunities

  1. BRIDGES - A study examining brain development and self-harm in adolescent girls ages 12-16. 
  2. TMS - Examining the effectiveness of transcranial magnetic stimulation on treatment-resistant depression in adolescents. 

Interested in Participating?

To be contacted about current resarch opportunities, please complete this brief (~2 minute) survey. After completing the survey, a study team member will be in contact to share information about the studies for which you may be eligible.
