Dr. Marusak received her PhD in Translational Neuroscience in 2016. Her primary research interests are in identifying the effects of early adversity (e.g., abuse, violence exposure, medical trauma) on brain and behavioral development in children and adolescents. Her long term goal is to develop interventions capable of reducing psychiatric symptoms and improving quality of life for young people affected by early stress and/or mental health problems.
