We are thrilled to announce that our lab director, Dr. Susan Perlman, has been promoted to Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh! We are very proud of her and cannot wait for the exciting work to keep coming from the lab.

Recently, we had a new graduate student join our lab, Cat Camacho from Stanford University. She is attending the Neuroscience graduate program at the University of Pittsburgh and working in our lab. We are really excited to have a new addition!

 We are excited to have Dr. Katie Belardi join our lab as a Research Associate for the next year from Duquesne University. She is a Speech and Language Pathologist and a Visiting Assistant Professor at Duquesne University. Her research focuses on the impact language has on early development and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Check back this summer for information on upcoming studies.

Join the LCBD's Child Brain Campaign Research Registry and have the opportunity to participate in paid children's research studies. We are looking for families with children ages 0-18!
