Sarah Rodan


Sarah is a PhD Candidate at the InsideOut Institute and Lambert Initiative for Cannabinoid Therapeutics at the University of Sydney. She holds a Bachelors in Chemistry from the University of Birmingham, UK and a Masters in Neuroimaging from King’s College London, UK. She has always been fascinated with neuropsychopharmacology and aims to explore novel pharmacotherapies to improve available treatments for eating disorders. As part of her PhD, she will be investigating cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound from the cannabis plant, in children and adolescents with anorexia nervosa. She will also be investigating psilocybin, known colloquially as magic mushrooms, in adults with treatment-resistant anorexia nervosa. She hopes that these novel interventions will be effective adjuncts to psychotherapy to help individuals with anorexia nervosa along varying stages of illness progression.
