Bonnie Nagel, PhD

The OHSU Department of Psychiatry has seen tremendous growth in research over the past decade. We believe that excellence in research will lead ultimately to novel interventions and treatments to improve mental health and well-being. In collaboration with other OHSU Departments and the Department of Veterans Affairs, our faculty and trainees are engaged in innovative and high quality, well-funded research on various aspects of mental health. Involved faculty members have established translational and multidisciplinary working groups to understand the mechanisms, treatments, and outcomes in psychiatry.
