Seeking Knowledge to Cure and Prevent

Our clinical research programs range from efficacy and treatment-response studies to clinical trials and epidemiology. Our basic research encompasses bioinformatics, genetics, neuroscience, neuroimaging, and molecular biology - all in an effort to unlock the causal pathways to the major psychiatric conditions and to use this knowledge to develop practical means to improve diagnosis and treatment.

Depression affects as many as 15 percent of people age 65 and older. “Most doctors don’t recognize the threat geriatric mental health problems bring because they’re not trained to do so,” Lehmann says. Now, with the release of self-paced, online learning modules she’s crafted for medical students, she aims to heighten awareness about late-life depression—and its nuances—for the next generation of doctors.
