Research Overview

Noelle Huntington’s research focuses on children with disabilities and special health care needs including the early identification of developmental disabilities, the development of community-based services, and the presence and impact of health disparities.  She currently is a co-Investigator on an NIH-funded study examining the impact of returning genetic research results about children to their parents.  Much of her work has been conducted in the community, with underserved populations, which requires understanding and incorporating the perspectives of participants and others outside the academic research team in order to capture outcomes of importance to multiple stakeholders. In addition, Dr. Huntington provides extensive teaching, consultation and mentoring on research for a wide range of projects.  She serves as the Director of Fellowship Research in Developmental Medicine and has conducted research workshops at national conferences and has been invited to speak at conferences about research methods.

About Noelle Huntington

Dr. Huntington received her PhD in Developmental Psychology from Cornell University.  She was the recipient of an NIH post-doctoral fellowship in health services research which focused on health disparities and quality of life.
