CSTS Doctoral Graduate Student Fellow Matthew Thompson received a National Research Service Award (NRSA/F31) from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) for his research project, entitled "Examining Suicide Risk from a Biopsychosocial Framework: A Large-Scale Cross-Sectional Study." This award will further support his dissertation research, which broadly aims to investigate the combined associations of brain structure and connectivity, genetic, and psychosocial risk indicators for suicide using large-scale biomedical data. His work is supported by his Co-Mentors, Dr. Marjan Holloway and Dr. Joshua Gray, collaborators within CSTS, and consultants at Emory University and Florida State University. Foundational research that was important to the development of Matt’s award application can be found in a preprint on bioRxiv.
