  • Gail Daumit Lab

    Research in the Gail Daumit Lab is devoted to improving overall health and decreasing premature mortality for people with serious mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. We have conducted observational studies to determine and convey the burden of physical health problems in this vulnerable population, and are currently leading a randomized trial funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to test a comprehensive cardiovascular risk reduction program in people with serious mental illness.

    Research Areas: mental health, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, cardiovascular diseases

  • Laura Gitlin Lab

    Research in the Laura Gitlin Lab focuses on aging in place, family caregiving, nonpharmacologic approaches to dementia care and functional disability. We study quality-of-life improvements for people with dementia or functional difficulties and their caregivers, including adaptive aids such as assistive devices and environmental modifications. Other research investigates disparities in mental health in older African Americans undergoing treatment for depression.

    Research Areas: assistive devices, African Americans, depression, aging, family-centered care, evidence-based medicine, dementia, gerontology, health disparities

  • Margaret Daniele Fallin Lab

    Work in the Margaret Daniele Fallin Lab focuses on the genetic epidemiology of neuropsychiatric conditions. Our team primarily studies the genetic basis of autism spectrum disorder, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. We also explore the integration of genetic susceptibility and environmental risk. Our current research involves applying genetic epidemiology methods to develop applications and methods for epigenetic epidemiology, with a focus on mental health and development.

    Research Areas: autism, mental health, epidemiology, schizophrenia, genomics, bipolar disorder, neuropsychiatric disease, Alzheimer's disease

  • Mary Catherine Beach Lab

    Research in the Mary Catherine Beach Lab focuses on physician mindfulness and the patient-provider relationship and how such factors impact health care quality. Current research involves investigating the theoretical foundations of respect, as well as the impact of physician attitudes and communication on patients in the primary care setting, with a specific focus on HIV, substance abuse and sickle cell disease patients. We also explore issues such as patients’ rights, mental health parity, human subject protection, genetic discrimination, human cloning and stem cell research.

    Research Areas: physician mindfulness, mental health, sickle cell diseases, substance abuse, patient-provider relationships, HIV, patients’ rights

  • Outcomes After Critical Illness and Surgery Group

    The Outcomes After Critical Illness and Surgery Group is focused on understanding and improving patient outcomes after critical illness and surgery. Research projects include improving long-term outcomes research for acute respiratory distress syndrome/acute respiratory failure (ARDS/ARF) patients; examining the long-term outcomes for acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome (ALI/ARDS) patients; and evaluating the effects of lower tidal volume ventilation and other aspects of critical illness and ICU care on the long-term physical and mental health outcomes of ALI/ARDS patients.

    Research Areas: critical care medicine, acute respiratory distress syndrome, pulmonary medicine, acute lung injury, rehabilitation

  • The Johns Hopkins Center for Global NCD Research and Training

    The Johns Hopkins Center for Global NCD Research and Training consists of faculty, fellows, and students from institutions across the United States and around the globe. Our mission is to conduct high-quality research and training for the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), with an aim to build local capacity through partnerships with local institutions and communities. Our current projects encompass subject matters ranging from clean cookstoves to mental health and involve sites in Peru, Uganda, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

    The burden of NCDs in LMICs is growing rapidly as a result of population aging, rapid unplanned urbanization, and the globalization of unhealthy lifestyles. We envision a robust and sustainable community of NCD researchers and trainees in both high and low income settings dedicated to improving health and well-being for all.

  • William Weiss Lab

    The William Weiss Lab studies the monitoring, assessment and evaluation of international health care programs, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. Our research uses health informatics, rapid-assessment methods, mobile health applications and surveillance systems to investigate the access to health care—in particular mental health services—in populations experiencing trauma due to violence and natural disaster. Study populations include Syrian refugee children in Jordan, survivors of torture and militant attacks in Southern Iraq and survivors of natural disasters such as the Pakistan floods, the Haiti earthquake and the Indonesian tsunami.

    Research Areas: global health, mental health, mobile health, international health, informatics, disaster preparedness, trauma
