Jenny Cowen, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist and the administrative director of clinical research within the Department of Psychiatry at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. For the last 2 decades, Dr. Cowen’s role at UCLA includes oversight and management of clinical research of ADHD, ASD (autism spectrum disorders) and related disorders conducted within the child division at UCLA. Within this role, she is responsible for the execution of all operations involved with clinical research, from inception to publication and everything in-between, while leading a team of researchers at various levels of their careers. Dr. Cowen has focused much of her research, clinical activities and associated publications in the treatment of ADHD and autism, including medication and, more recently, has been involved in the research and development of the first non-pharmacologic treatment for ADHD (eTNS) to obtain FDA approval. This exciting new development coupled with her recent completion of an early childhood development fellowship at UCLA, has fueled Dr. Cowen’s passion for helping children with neurodevelopmental disorders to not only live up to their potential, but also to thrive within each of their unique gifts.
