Jacqueline Gollan, PhD is a clinical psychologist and Assistant Professor in the Feinberg School of Medicine’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.  She is also Director of the Translational Research on Stress and Affective Disorders Laboratory (SADLAB) and Director of the Northwestern University Regional Center for the Depression Treatment Network (DTN), a collaborative network of mood disorder researchers from 15 academic institutions. Before she joined the faculty at Northwestern, Dr. Gollan completed her PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Washington in Seattle, a clinical internship at Brown University, and a postdoctoral fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital.  Upon completion of her postdoctoral training, Dr. Gollan joined the faculty at the University of Chicago Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience.  Dr. Gollan’s research focuses on applying translational methods to investigate individual differences in brain activation in depression and anxiety, and the investigation of the effects of psychological and medication effects on brain functioning with individuals with depression.  Toward that end, she aims to identify biomarkers that serve as prognostic indicators of successful treatment response for mood disorders.  Dr. Gollan’s current research also includes developing cost-effective versions of Behavioral Activation treatment for depression.
