Jersey City, NJ
Speaker: Dr. Regina Sullivan
Dr. Regina M. Sullivan is a Developmental Behavioral Neuroscientist researching the neurobiology underlying long-term mental health consequences after abuse and trauma in early life. Her research highlights differences between infant and adult brain responses to trauma, as well as how the caregiver can modify the response of the young brain. After completing her PhD with The City University of New York, she went on to train as a postdoc at Duke University and The University of California. During her work at NYU, she has authored numerous publications and book chapters, and has lectured nationally and internationally on the neurobiology of infant attachment. She has consulted for the NIH, chaired committees on child development across the country, served on the board on scientific journals, and has served a multitude of foundations on early life stress. We are thrilled to present our distinguished guest, Dr. Regina Sullivan.
