S.L. Ramey Lab

Led by principal investigator Sharon Landesman Ramey, Ph.D., the Landesman Ramey Lab addresses three major areas of human development: the contribution of early experience, from before conception through the prenatal and early postnatal periods, to later health, social-emotional, and intellectual development (including the fields of behavioral teratology and early intervention research); the development and testing of highly-promising treatments for children with disabilities and at-risk conditions; and how to improve the provision of health, education, and social services and strengthen natural community supports, to benefit children and families — the intersection between the new field of implementation science and public policy/public opinion.
