Join us for a Special Guest Lecture featuring the work of Julie Schweitzer, PhD. Dr. Schweitzer will review the use of computerized and video conferencing approaches to address symptoms and cognitive performance in children with ADHD and other neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., autism, fragile X)..
Dr. Schweitzer is Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Director of the Attention, Impulsivity and Regulation (AIR) Program at the MIND Institute at the UC Davis School of Medicine and Director, UC Davis Schools of Health Mentoring Academy. Her goal is to apply translational research methods using a combination of behavioral and physiological methods (e.g., fMRI) to better characterize and develop targeted treatments for self-control and attentional disorders in children and adults. This includes identifying subtypes of attentional and impulse-related disorders associated with attention-deficit/ hyperactivity (ADHD). In addition, she conducts investigator-initiated clinical trial research using digital, cognitive and behavioral approaches in ADHD and autism. She has a long history of studying reward-related functioning across populations, including, typical development, ADHD, schizophrenia and substance use disorders.
Dr. Schweitzer is committed to the development of junior faculty and postdoctoral scholars in the implementation of translational research. She is the co-Director of the Mentored Clinical Research Training Program, Associate Director of the CTSC TL1 program and Director of the UC Davis Health Mentoring Academy.
