Research Interests

Lauren Weinstock's program of research is focused on the phenomenology and treatment of MDD and bipolar disorder. She has particular interests in the heterogeneity of depressive symptom expression across the mood disorders, cognitive, behavioral, affective, and interpersonal predictors of bipolar illness course, and psychosocial treatment development. Dr. Weinstock maintains a complementary line of research focused on suicide, especially in bipolar depression.
