About Us

Welcome to the Promoting Healthy Adolescent Development (PHAD) Lab! We are a psychology lab at the University of Virginia, led by Dr. Noelle Hurd, that focuses on finding ways to promote the positive development of youth. Specifically, our focus is identifying ways to build up pre-existing strengths in youths’ lives. We work within both the university and the larger Charlottesville communities to conduct research and learn more about the factors that lead to healthy development.
