2nd Annual WIL Luncheon
September 22, 2012
Jersey City, NJ
Speaker: Dr. Elizabeth Gould
Dr. Gould received her Ph.D. from UCLA and completed a postdoc at The Rockefeller University, where her pioneering work on neurogenesis and cell death shaped the early development of these fields. Dr. Gould went on to join Princeton University as a professor of psychology. Her lab has produced breakthrough work on the effects of stress, hormonal factors, glucocorticoids, aging, maternal care and exercise on adult neurogenesis, structural plasticity, and memory.
