Carla Canuso started her career as a psychiatric nurse working with patients suffering from schizophrenia and other mental illnesses. This work sparked an interest to further her education through medical school, which led to a residency in Psychiatry and eventually a position among the faculty of Harvard Medical School. After seven years at Harvard, she transitioned to Janssen Pharmaceuticals (Janssen) in 2002, where she has been ever since. She is currently a senior director of neuroscience clinical development, and her day-to-day work focuses on finding treatments for patients at imminent risk for suicide.
