The Shuffrey Lab in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at NYU Grossman School of Medicine is recruiting a laboratory manager, research assistant, and postdoctoral fellow. Dr. Lauren Shuffrey’s research program examines the role of the prenatal environment on vulnerability for both perinatal maternal mental health concerns and child neurodevelopmental disorders in order to identify mechanisms, objective markers, and modifiable factors associated with resiliency. Dr. Shuffrey’s ongoing projects are primarily focused on the effects of prenatal maternal metabolic disorders, prenatal maternal mood disorders, and substance exposure on child brain-behavioral development from birth through early childhood. Research methodologies broadly include peripheral marker assays (e.g. immunoassays), electroencephalography (EEG), eye-tracking, and behavioral paradigms.
