Please join us for an exciting research talk by Alice Graham, Ph.D. Titled: Increasing Understanding of Prenatal Influences on Neurodevelopment and Behavioral Risk Phenotypes
Dr. Graham is a developmental neuroscientist and clinical psychologist. She currently is the Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Oregon Health & Science University. Dr. Graham received her PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Oregon, and completed her clinical internship and residency at the Child Development & Rehabilitation Center and the Department of Psychiatry at OHSU. She conducted postdoctoral research in the Department of Behavioral Neuroscience at OHSU as part of an NIMH funded fellowship. Her program of research focuses on understanding mechanisms through which the early environment influences mental health outcomes, and advancing prevention efforts. She has frequently employed functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) with infants in her research to study the early development of brain systems implicated in psychiatric disorders. Her ongoing work in this area has focused on the role of prenatal conditions, and particularly maternal stress biology, in influencing offspring brain development. Dr. Graham’s current work, funded by an early career award from NIMH (K99/R00), focuses on employing intervention as a means to test causal mechanisms and answer questions pertinent to developmental and clinical psychology and developmental neuroscience.
