Meet Our Team

Our team members are based at institutions across the country. The organizational structure includes a leadership team, science and technology investigators, research members, Center partners, and advisory board members.

Center Leadership

CTBH thrives under the directorship of Dr. Lisa Marsch. Separate teams lead the Treatment Development & Evaluation, Emerging Technologies & Data Analytics, and Dissemination & Implementation Cores of the center. The leadership team provides strategic planning for the center and oversees the administrative activities of the center as a whole.
