Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry
U-M Addiction Center


Jillian E. Hardee, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry as well as a Lecturer in the Department of Psychology. Her research seeks to understand the neurobiological factors that are integral to risk for substance use and addiction in adolescents and emerging adults, using longitudinal and cross-sectional neuroimaging.

Dr. Hardee is developing a project that aims to: 1) characterize the neural-based sex differences underlying risk for substance use; 2) understand the relationship between sex differences and response to brief interventions; 3) investigate what neural mechanisms constitute efficacy in brief interventions. She is also interested in the link between eating behaviors and the brain.
