Amy C. Janes, PhD, directs the Functional Integration of Addiction Research Laboratory at the McLean Imaging Center. While she began her research career studying addiction in preclinical models, her current NIH-funded research uses clinical neuroimaging to clarify how individual differences in brain function, chemistry, and structure influence drug use and relapse. She also uses these tools to clarify links between drug use and psychopathology, with the goal of using neuroscience to inform personalized treatment development.
Dr. Janes directs the clinical-basic training track of the NIDA T32 Post-Doctoral Training Program and she holds a joint appointment with Suffolk University to provide research training to pre-doctoral candidates attaining degrees in clinical psychology.
