Adam Grabell receives Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award from NIH

Adam Grabell, Assistant Professor, starting Fall 2017 in the UMass Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences has received an NIH K23 Award! This Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award will train Grabell to probe deliberate regulation in preschoolers ranging from low to severe irritability, over a period of rapid development, and connect findings to translational implications.

Grabell’s current expertise includes differentiating the normal:abnormal spectrum of emergent psychopathology, with a focus on early disruptive behavior, multivariate statistics, and basic skills in acquiring and analyzing EEG and functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) data. His mentorship team, Drs. Harvey, Perlman, Wakschlag, Huppert, Grovetant, Deater-Deckard, and Fox, will provide expertise in child neuroimaging, emotion regulation, irritability, longitudinal design, and child treatment efficacy.
