Melanie Jean Bonner
Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

My current research efforts focus on evaluating and remediating cognitive functioning in children with illnesses that impact the central nervous system. Current projects include: 1) evaluation of a cognitive intervention for children with sickle cell disease; 2) intervention aimed at improving adherence to medication regiments in children with sickle cell disease; and 3) remediation of cognitive deficits in children undergoing treatment for pediatric tumors.  I also consult on several multi-center projects aimed at evaluating cognitive functioning and quality of life in children with disease.
