Juliet Beni Edgcomb, MD PhD, is a child and adolescent psychiatrist at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior. Her research focuses on the application of clinical informatics to improve detection, prediction, and prevention of childhood-onset mental illness. She received a PhD in psychology from UC Riverside, attended the David Geffen School of Medicine, and completed psychiatry residency at UCLA, where she served as program chief resident. She has received the Ritvo Fellow Award and Sorensen Foundation Fellowship, as well as research grants from the AFSP, APA Foundation, and Thrasher Research Fund, and she is a Steven, Sally, and Isabel Grimes Investigator through the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation NARSAD Research Partners Program. This fall, Dr. Edgcomb received an NIMH K23 award to develop computable phenotypes and improve risk prediction modeling of suicidal behavior among children. She was recently one of four recipients nationally of the Deeda Blair Research Initiative Award to apply semi- and weakly-supervised approaches to develop electronic health record phenotypes of childhood-onset mental illness and suicide attempts.
