She received her PhD from Cornell University Graduate School of Medical Sciences and her MD from the Medical College of PA and completed her Psychiatry residency at John Hopkins Hospital . She also did research fellowships at the NIH and in Lausanne, Switzerland. Her research interests have focused on developing animal models of neuropsychiatric disorders and more recently on using quantitative imaging techniques to aid in the early diagnosis of dementing illnesses, primarily, Alzheimer’s Disease. She has received numerous awards for her teaching and mentoring of medical students and Psychiatry residents at Northwestern and the University of Chicago, where she was on faculty, and has had a Career Development Award in Geriatric Mental Health from the NIMH.
