Jenifer McGuire, PhD, is Associate Professor with CEHD Family Social Science at the University of Minnesota. Her research focus has been on the health and well-being of transgender youth. Specifically, she focuses on gender development among adolescents and young adults and how social contexts like schools and families influence the well-being of trans and gender non-conforming young people. Dr. McGuire's current focus is on gender identity development across a broad spectrum and family relationships among transgender and genderqueer identified youth and young adults. She has collaborated closely with the National Center for Gender Spectrum Health over the last several years in the development of new assessment and research protocols.
