dr. E. Sprooten (Emma)

Dr. Emma Sprooten conducts research at the intersection of neuroimaging and human genetics. The principal goal of her work is to understand biological factors and processes that underlie the onset and course of psychiatric symptoms. Dr. Sprooten received her Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh in 2012 for her work on diffusion tensor imaging and genetic risk for bipolar disorder. She was a postdoctoral researcher at Yale University, analysing neuroimaging (endo)phenotypes of psychiatric disorders through pedigree studies and genomic analysis. In 2015 she joined the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, where she pursued imaging phenotypes with more direct clinical potential, in particular using high-field MRI analysis. Dr. Sprooten was awarded a NARSAD Young Investigator Award in 2016 to study cortical myelin in schizophrenia. She joined the Donders Institute in March 2017, after obtaining a Hypatia Tenure-Track Grant from the Radboudumc for her project “Determinants of Long-term Trajectories in ADHD (DELTA)”.
