The International Adoption Project is led by Dr. Megan Gunnar, Regents Professor of the Institute of Child Development and Dr. Richard Lee, Professor of the Department of Psychology, both at the University of Minnesota.

Since 1997, the International Adoption Project mission is to connect families and individuals in the international adoption community with research opportunities so we can continue to increase our knowledge about pre- and post-adoption development. Our aim in all aspects of our research work is to develop a clearer picture of the successes, challenges, and perhaps unmet needs of individuals who joined their families through international adoption.
