NEURODEVELOPMENTAL RISK FACTORS FOR DEPRESSION FROM CHILDHOOD TO EARLY ADULTHOOD
Grant number: 1125504 | Funding period: 2017 - 2021
To understand who is at risk for depression, we need to understand how both the environment and biological factors promote risk at specific times in the life cycle. This research project will examine such risk factors in different phases of life (from in utero to early adulthood) using a developmental framework. The results of this research will provide a clearer basis for the design of prevention strategies that target individuals, their families and/or broader environmental factors.
