    Collapse Overview
    Elissa June Hamlat's research focuses on the prevention and treatment of depression throughout the life span. Her work has documented the pubertal transition as a period of risk and the biological mechanisms by which early life adversity increases risk for accelerated development and aging. She is interested in how the intersection of gender and ethnicity may play a role in these relations. At UCSF, Dr. Hamlat is evaluating how digital tools may augment depression treatment and on increasing health equity for those underserved in mental health care services.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
