Current Research Interests

Dr. McClure’s lab in the psychology department at Fairfield University studies risk and protective factors for intimate partner violence in college student dating relationships, including childhood trauma, anxiety and mood symptoms, personality factors, and emotion regulation.  Dr. McClure’s off-campus lab, which is housed at Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai in New York City, is focused on treating cognitive, interpersonal, and functional deficits of individuals with schizophrenia spectrum disorders such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and schizotypal personality disorder using cognitive remediation therapy (CRT).  Dr. McClure’s NARSAD Young Investigator Award (The Brain & Behavior Foundation) examines the impact of CRT when paired with an agent that targets the norepinephrine system compared to CRT plus placebo.
