Located at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School, the CARE (Cognition and Affect Research and Education) lab conducts research to identify cognitive and affective mechanisms underlying emotional disorders, translate these findings into new treatments, and implement these treatments in real world settings. Many CARE Lab studies test new technology-driven treatments that focus on improving interpretation bias and other cognitive vulnerabilities.  We incorporate our patients' perspectives to ensure treatments will be acceptable and helpful to people in real-world clinical settings.


The CARE Lab is dedicated to training the next generation of mental health researchers and clinicians and disseminating scientific findings to the public. The CARE Lab fully affirms the Harvard Medical School Diversity Statement and the Massachusetts General Brigham Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Vision Statement.  We strive to create an  inclusive research lab, and mentor future leaders in the mental health field.
