Her other important collaborations include investigating the relationship between cerebral blood flow autoregulation and neurocognitive outcomes after cardiac surgery, modeling disease trajectory in children and adolescents with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, and eating disorders, and, most recently, single case designs for behavioral interventions in children with self-injury.

Dr. Yenokyan reviews statistical aspects of scientific proposals submitted to the Clinical Research Units of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health.
