The primary research objective of the Clinical Neuroendocrinology Laboratory is to gain a better understanding of the endocrine basis of mood and anxiety disorders. We conduct field studies and laboratory experiments. Our laboratory experiments employ a wide variety of pharmacologic agents to test various candidate mechanisms. Quite recently, we have been investigating a possible endocrine basis for Alzheimer’s Disease. In collaboration with Dell Medical School, we hope to begin data collection within the next year.


Professor Josephs plans to accept 1 clinical psychology graduate student for Fall 2022, with particular research interest in suicidality. The UT-Austin clinical psychology program is ranked 10th in the US, and trains students as scientists-practitioners.
