Clinical Innovations

The Clinical Innovation pod focuses on clinical trials of child mental health interventions, evaluating the accumulating evidence around specific interventions, and disseminating current assessments of the state of the evidence for child mental health treatments for different disorders. Additionally, investigators oversee clinical trials of new and promising treatments for childhood psychiatric disorders.
  • The Anxiety and Mood Disorders Lab uses a range of assessment approaches, several developed by members of our team, including methods to capture self-reported data, behavioral methods, imaging and EEG technology.
  • The Bloch lab focuses on establishing the efficacy and safety of various pharmacological treatments using evidence-based methodologies including meta-analysis and clinical trials.
  • We are interested in understanding the underlying neurobiological mechanisms of childhood anxiety disorders, and in developing and testing new therapies based on this understanding. A special emphasis is on the family systems of anxious children and on parental involvement in their children’s anxiety symptoms.
