Hanna E Stevens MD PhD

Assistant Professor (Adjunct) in the Child Study Center; Associate Director, Albert J. Solnit Integrated Training Program

Biographical Info

Hanna Stevens joined the faculty of the Child Study Center in 2010. She is currently directing a program of research on model systems of early brain development. She is particularly interested in the impact of prenatal genetic and environmental factors on childhood behavioral problems and how early events in brain development relate to the onset of major mental illness, such as depression and schizophrenia, in adolescence and adulthood. The long term goals of her research program are to better understand the etiologies of child and adult mental illnesses and to improve outcomes for pregnant mothers affected by mood and anxiety disorders.

Dr. Stevens is also the associate training director of the Child Study Center's innovative psychiatry residency program. The Solnit Integrated Program provides psychiatrists-in-training with the opportunity to integrate general, child and research psychiatry across all stages of their career and will be a major pathway by which the next generation of academic leaders in child psychiatry are developed.
