Carolyn Caine is a Clinical Research Assistant in the NLAMH. She graduated from Cornell University with a B.A. in Philosophy in 2006 and from Boston University with an M.A. in Psychology in 2013. During the intervening period, she worked as a Research Assistant and Teaching Fellow at Yale University. Along the way, she discovered her interest in clinical psychology, which led her first to the Psychotherapy and Emotion Research Lab at BU and then to her current position in which she rotates among different labs at the McLean Imaging Center. Carolyn is interested in translational research that seeks to improve treatment outcomes by elucidating the nature of mood, anxiety, and substance use disorders, and by identifying the active ingredients of evidence-based treatments. She hopes to complete a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology.
