Program: Clinical



The Research on Eating Disorders and Suicidality (REDS) Laboratory examines how biological and psychological risk factors contribute to disordered eating and suicidal behavior. Additionally, our lab’s research explores the high rates of suicidality and self-injury among individuals with eating disorders. Our lab incorporates multiple methodological approaches (e.g., implicit cognition, psychophysiological assessment) and experimental and correlational methods to approach these questions.
