The Emory SCORE (U54AG062334) was funded by NIH in 2018 based on the premise that a clear understanding of the inherent biological differences between the sexes, and how these differences are influenced by social determinants of health, will inform health sciences in ways that will illuminate and help to diminish the health disparities that exist between male and female.

Faculty Spotlight

Vas Michopoulos

Vas Michopoulos, PhD Associate Professor Department of Psychiatry
and Behavioral Sciences

Core Scientist Yerkes National Primate Research Center

Co-Director Grady Trauma Project

Research Focus

Dr. Michopoulos investigates how adverse social experience influences physiology, behavior, brain processes, and the emergence of psychopathology. Using a translational neuroscience approach across humans and non-human primates, she is interested in how psychosocial stress exposure (including trauma) across the lifespan adversely affects behavior and physiology.

Why Sex Matters in Science

... Because there appears to be a neural basis anchoring the observation that women have been shown to be at higher risk than men for trauma-related psychopathology.
