Welcome to the

ADHD Lifecourse Lab

A life course approach to understanding ADHD

About Us

Led by Dr. Jessica Agnew-Blais, our lab investigates the developmental course of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) across the life span, including how genetic and environmental risk factors are associated with ADHD course, and functional outcomes associated with different ADHD developmental trajectories.

Dr Jessica Agnew-Blais is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Queen Mary University London. Her research investigates the developmental course of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) across the life span, including how genetic and environmental risk factors are associated with ADHD course, and functional outcomes associated with different ADHD developmental trajectories. Her current research focuses on ADHD among girls and women, and the role of hormonal fluctuations in functioning among women with ADHD. Dr. Agnew-Blais received her PhD in Psychiatric Epidemiology from the T.H. Chan Harvard School of Public Health, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London.

What is ADHD?

ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a neurodevelopment condition characterised by persistent patterns of inattention, impulsivity, and/or hyperactivity that affect individuals across their lifespan. From childhood through adulthood, ADHD can have profound effects on academic, professional, and personal life.

 

By gaining insights into the lifecourse trajectory of ADHD, we can develop more targeted interventions, support systems, and policies to improve outcomes for individuals with ADHD at every age.

Our Lab Ethos

Inclusivity and Diversity

Valuing varied experiences, perspectives, and identities, we foster an environment where everyone's voice is heard and respected, irrespective of gender, religion, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.

Community Engagement

We value active engagement with the ADHD community, seeking input from individuals, families, and advocacy groups to ensure our research is respectful and responsive to their needs.

Interdisciplinary Collaboration

We actively collaborate across disciplines, bringing together experts in psychology, neuroscience, education, and related fields to gain a holistic understanding of ADHD.

Translational Impact

Dedicated to translating research into practical benefits, we strive to bridge the gap between academic findings and real-world applications for individuals with ADHD.
