Bridging Gaps in Female Mental Health Research with ENIGMA-Neuroendocrinology Working Group

The Department of Clinical Psychology at Friedrich Schiller University Jena in Germany, led by Carina Heller, is a leading center for mental health research. The university collaborates with the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at Jena University Hospital, as well as the Center for Intervention and Research on adaptive and maladaptive brain Circuits underlying mental health (C-I-R-C) in Halle, Germany. This makes it part of the German Center for Mental Health (DZPG) in Jena-Magdeburg-Halle.

On the other hand, Carina Heller and Zora Kikinis from the Psychiatry Neuroimaging Laboratory at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA, US, are actively involved in psychiatric research. Meanwhile, Claudia Barth from the Department of Psychiatric Research at Diakonhjemmet Hospital in Oslo, Norway, is working to enhance our understanding of mental health.

In Australia, researchers such as Tim J. Silk and Nandita Vijayakumar from Deakin University and the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne are focusing on early emotional development in children. Nandita Vijayakumar also works at the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Melbourne.

In Spain, Susana Carmona and Magdalena Martínez-García from the Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria Gregorio Marañón and Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red de Salud Mental (CIBERSAM) in Madrid are also conducting research on mental health issues.

Lastly, two institutions – Imaging Genetics Center at the University of Southern California in Marina del Rey and the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA – are conducting their own studies on mental health matters under leadership by researchers such as Nicole Petersen.
