Dr. Burkhouse (with Co-I’s Dr. Suor, Dr. Stange, Dr. Van Voorhees, and Dr. Caskey) received a Center for Clinical & Translational Sciences (CCTS) Pilot Grant Award for their project entitled: Pathways Linking Maternal Depression to Mental and Physical Health Outcomes among Offspring during Early Childhood.
The NARSAD Young Investigator Grant provides support for the most promising young scientists conducting neurobiological research.
Research has shown that when we experience a positive event in our lives, our brains respond with an increase in electrical activity — a reaction known as “reward positivity.” People who suffer from depression, however, tend to show reduced brain activity in response to good things happening in their lives.
Congratulations to Dr. Katie Burkhouse on her selection as the 2018 New Investigator Award recipient from the American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology (ASCP).
Dr. Burkhouse is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and a Clinical Psychologist affiliated with UIC’s Pediatric Mood Disorders Clinic. She received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from Binghamton University (SUNY) and completed her Clinical Internship at UIC.
