A researcher at the University of Rochester Medical Center has received a prestigious National Institutes of Health grant to try a pair of potential treatments for teenagers at risk of suicide.
Arielle Sheftall, an associate professor of psychiatry, is collaborating with two researchers at the University of Notre Dame. They received a five-year, $4 million grant from the NIH's High-Risk, High-Reward research program, which attempts to identify novel research directions with a possible broad impact.
The work holds added significance as teen suicide rates in the United States continue to rise: up 35% in the last 20 years, with further increases since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
