Dr. Stenbæk is an associate professor at University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen University Hospital.

She conducts research from an integrated experimental approach where her overall research focus is the interdisciplinary study of pharmacological manipulations of the serotonin (5-HT) system. She mainly focuses on neuropsychopharmacological effects of the 5-HT 2A receptor agonist psilocybin. To understand how 5-HT more broadly is involved in neurocognition in the healthy and disordered brain, she also studies associations of various 5-HT receptors using PET imaging, i.e., 5-HT2AR, 5-HT4R, 5-HTT and 5-HT1BR with personality and neurocognition.
