Stephen Smagula, PhD

Dr. Stephen Smagula studies the role of behavioral disruption in the development of late-life depression, and how behavioral (rest-activity rhythm and sleep-wake characteristics) and neurobiological (brain structural pathology) factors inter-relate to cause depression. After earning a PhD in Neuroepidemiology from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, as a postdoctoral scholar he obtained additional training and conducted research focusing on sleep medicine and late-life mood disorders. Dr. Smagula is currently investigating depression in dementia caregivers and linking brain structure and sleep-wake risks with support from a career development (K01) award from the National Institute of Mental Health.
