Dr. Jean A. King, Ph.D., has received research grant support from the National
Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, Centers for Disease Control, and
the American Association of University Women, among others. With this research support
she has made seminal contributions to the body of scientific knowledge, including the
discovery that early stress can have profound consequences in adulthood and that
non-invasively imaging the brains of these patients can provide clues as to accurate
diagnosis and consequently proper treatment strategies. Dr. King has also worked with
magnetic imaging technologies and has been granted a patent for discoveries in this area
with others pending. Besides administering several nationally funded grant projects as
principal investigator, Dr. King serves in a key administrative position as Director of
the Center for Comparative NeuroImaging at the University of Massachusetts Medical School
and Vice-Chair of Research.
