Pearl Chiu, an assistant professor at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, was featured on the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities radio show, “With Good Reason.” The program aired on December 5.

Chiu spoke about her research on understanding the mechanisms of depression and developing tools to aid in diagnosing the condition that affects nearly 15 million American adults. Despite the high number of those affected, doctors still don’t know much about how depression works. New research from Chiu’s laboratory suggests that magnetic resonance imaging of the brain may aid doctors in diagnosing depression.
