Joseph McGrath graduated with honors from Stanford University with his B.S. in Human Biology, concentrating on neuroscience and psychopathology. Working with the Autism and Developmental Disorders Research Program (ADDRP), he currently coordinates pivotal response treatment (PRT) trials, while also acting as a registered behavioral therapist that implements the PRT therapy with the Preschool Autism Lab (PAL). Additionally, Joseph coordinates a number of drug clinical trials. Interested in the interplay between psycho- and pharmacotherapies, Joseph plans to apply to medical school, hoping his exploration of research methodologies will inform a future in clinical psychiatry.
