Dr. Lucres Nauta-Jansen

Dr. Lucres Nauta-Jansen is a Principal Investigator at the Department of Child- and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychosocial care of Amsterdam UMC – VUmc, where she leads the research section Youth at Risk.

Her research section focuses on disruptive and antisocial behavior in youth, ranging from normal population samples, to clinical samples of children and adolescents with disruptive behavior disorders, to youth within the judicial system (forensic child- and adolescent psychiatry). The research ranges from studies focusing on underlying mechanisms of antisocial behavior, to risk taxation and intervention studies.

Her personal research focus concerns the neurobiological background of antisocial and disruptive behavior. The main aim of this research is to unravel the neurobiological mechanisms that, in interaction with other individual and environmental factors may explain the development, persistence and effectiveness of treatment of antisocial and delinquent behavior in children and adolescents.
