Dr. Dwyer completed her MD and PhD (Pharmacology) at the Univ. of California, Irvine, where she studied the development of the dopamine system in adolescence. She works clinically with children and adults, with a broad interest in how the brain and mind develop over time. She studies treatment-refractory adolescent depression, and hopes to better predict who will respond to different types of treatments, ranging from intensive psychotherapies to novel pharmacotherapeutics (e.g. ketamine).
