Division of Developmental Translational Research (DDTR)


The Division of Developmental Translational Research supports programs of research and research training with the ultimate goal of preventing and curing childhood psychopathology. The Division stimulates and promotes an integrated program of research across basic behavioral/psychological processes, environmental processes, brain development, pediatric psychopathology and therapeutic interventions. DDTR supports research that employs a developmental perspective on a variety of related basic behavioral processes and the psychopathology that arises from their dysfunction. These efforts to translate knowledge from basic research to a new understanding of clinical disorders share the goal of developing novel treatment and prevention strategies.
