Jessie Northrup, PhD, Receives Two Awards from the International Society for Autism Research

Congratulations to Jessie Northrup, PhD (Assistant Professor of Psychiatry), who has received both the prestigious (INSAR) Slifka/Ritvo Innovation in Autism Research Award, as well as an Early Career Investigator Award from the International Society for Autism Research! 

Dr. Northrup’s research focuses on emotion regulation in individuals with autism spectrum disorder, with a particular focus on parent-child interactions. She currently leads a National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)-funded K23 career development award focused on parent-child interaction and emotion regulation in preschoolers with autism, the typical age of diagnosis and entry into intervention. 

The Slifka/Ritvo Award honors the most meritorious and innovative research ideas of early-career investigators. Dr. Northrup was presented with an Early Career Investigator Award in recognition of her paper, published in Autism Research, examining how emotion dysregulation may relate to aggressive or self-injurious behaviors in autistic individuals.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Northrup!
