HDRF is funding a study at Johns Hopkins that uses advanced neuroimaging to measure the brain’s immune cells in depressed patients, a potential new way for doctors to diagnose depression early and target any inflammation to promote brain health. The trial started in December, 2020 and will continue through December, 2023.
Jennifer M. Coughlin M.D. has been a member of the Johns Hopkins Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences faculty since July 2012. Dr. Coughlin’s research focuses on molecular neuroimaging to detect alterations in the immune system that might contribute to psychiatric conditions.
