At the Depression Clinical & Research Program (DCRP), she is involved in numerous clinical trials, sponsored by NIMH and foundations, investigating new pharmacologic treatments for Major Depression and TRD, including intravenous administration of ketamine and scopolamine
She is one of the programmers in the pivotal trial for Deep Brain Stimulation for MDD sponsored by Medtronic, for patients affected by extremely treatment-refractory depression.
Dr. Cusin is also developing two original projects aiming at detecting possible neurobiological mechanisms of placebo response in antidepressant clinical trials.
