Dr. Nagel is an Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience at Oregon Health & Science University, where she serves as the Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Psychiatry, directs the Developmental Brain Imaging Laboratory, and is a practicing neuropsychologist within the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She also serves the university as Senior Associate Vice President for Research. Dr. Nagel's research program focuses on adolescent brain and cognitive development in healthy and at-risk populations. Her work has primarily focused on understanding the development of executive, emotional, and reward-based networks in the brain using neuroimaging and how perturbations to these systems may result in a heightened vulnerability for mental illness during the adolescent years. More specifically, her lab has been conducting longitudinal neuroimaging studies of Portland-area youth for the past 15 years, with aims toward identifying neurobiological markers of risk and resilience for psychopathology, including depression, suicidality, and addiction, and hopes of ultimately informing more targeted intervention and prevention efforts. She is a Principal Investigator on several federally-funded National multi-site projects toward that end, including the National Consortium on Alcohol & Neurodevelopment in Adolescence (NCANDA) and the recently funded Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development Study (ABCD).
