Dr. Margaret, an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology, is the recipient of a 2018 R21 grant by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)) R21 Exploratory/Developmental Grant program supports exploratory and high-risk research projects that fall within the NIMH mission by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of these projects. These studies may involve considerable risk but may lead to a breakthrough or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methods, measures, models, or strategies, or to the generation of pilot or feasibility data. The preliminary work from these studies could lead to a major impact on biomedical, behavioral, or clinical mental health research, or on the delivery of mental health care.
Dr. Sheridan was awarded over $414,000 (over two years) for her project, “Using Growth Models to Identify How Trajectories of Infant Brain Development Predict Childhood Behavior and Neural Function.”
