Professor Lenroot received her medical degree and psychiatric training at the University
of New Mexico, followed by a fellowship at the Child Psychiatry Branch of the National Institutes of Health.

In 2009 she relocated to Sydney, Australia, to take up her current roles as Chair of Infant, Child, and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of New South Wales, Clinical Director of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services for Southeastern Sydney Local Health District and Research Fellow at Neuroscience Research Australia.

In this presentation, Professor Lenroot will talk about the latest findings from neuroimaging research about how the brain is changing during adolescence and how studies of development may be giving clues to the onset of disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
