Dr. Schmidt will be accepting a graduate student for Fall 2016 admissions.
Primary focus on three interrelated domains; (1) prevention
and treatment of anxiety pathology, (2) investigation of biobehavioral
parameters that affect the generation and maintenance of anxiety pathology,
and (3) the relationship between anxiety pathology and physical health.
We have a broad research agenda. Our laboratory is currently participating in approximately 10 different grant funded studies (NIMH, NIDA, OC Foundation, James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program). These studies focus on translational research, prevention, and treatment of anxiety psychopathology as well as smoking.
