About Jean A. King

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.
