Roberta L. Moldow, Ph.D.


Department of Biological Sciences


Dr. Roberta Moldow's research interest is the neuroendocrinology of the stress response.

I received my Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from Mount Sinai and did my post-doctoral research under the mentorship of Nobel Laureate, Dr. Rosalyn Yalow. My research interests include factors influencing the regulation of the circadian rhythmicity and stress response of the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis. Recently, I have done research using an animal model to study the etiology of post traumatic stress disorder and salivary biomarkers for the stress response in humans.
