    Laura Michele Hack

    Clinical Instructor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

    Bio Dr. Laura Hack is a Postdoctoral Fellow and Clinical Instructor under the mentorship of Drs. Leanne Williams, Alan Schatzberg, and Ruth O’Hara. She is a translational clinician with a research passion for integrating multiple types of biological and environmental data using advanced analytic techniques into a neuroscience-based taxonomy of mood, anxiety, and stressor-related disorders. Laura envisions herself as a ‘psychiatrist of the future,’ incorporating genetic information, brain imaging, blood-based markers, and data from wearable sensors into diagnostic and treatment decisions to help relieve the suffering that arises from our current trial-and-error approach.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Developmental Biology

    Bio I am a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Alistair Boettiger in the Department of Developmental Biology. I have always been interested in understanding regulatory mechanisms that lead to tissue or cell type specific gene expression. During my PhD in the lab of Galit Lahav at Harvard Medical School, I studied how temporal dynamics of a tumor suppressor transcription factor, p53 regulate the dynamics of gene expression in response to DNA damage. In the Boettiger lab, I'm interested how specificity between enhancer-promoter interactions is achieved using super-resolution microscopy.

    Kelsey E. Hagan, Ph.D.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Psychiatry

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests are broadly in eating and mood disorders. My research program is comprised of two primary lines of research. First, I am interested in elucidating the mechanisms of eating and internalizing disorders, with an emphasis on understanding the neural mechanisms of these disorders. Second, I study novel methods of diagnosis and classification of eating disorders and eating behaviors, especially dietary restraint. A long-term goal of my research is to leverage findings to improve treatments for those with eating disorders.

    Research Scholar, School of Medicine - Biomedical Ethics

    Bio I am a medical anthropologist with a background in public health and a passion for research that engages the voices of patients and families in improving population health and healthcare delivery. I am a proud Midwesterner, with a B.A. in anthropology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a PhD and MPH from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. My broad research interests include the psychosocial dimensions of health and illness, the well-being of children and families, and medical decision-making, particularly in the context of complex illness. I also am a perpetual student of the art of grant writing, and I love supporting scientists in developing this critical skill. At the Center for Biomedical Ethics, my research examines the ethical and economic implications of genome sequencing for diagnosis of children with rare diseases and their families. My work examines the ethical implications of varying approaches to economic evaluation and their relation to reimbursement and equitable access to new genomic technologies. I am also interested in the development of new tools for measurement of the costs and benefits of new genomic technologies that reflect patient values.
