Lorah Dorn PhD, CPNP
Penn State University
Dr. Dorn was my mentor for my Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women Health (BIRCWH) K-12 award. She continues to be an outstanding mentor to me and now serves as one of my collaborators. Her enthusiasm for research is infectious. Our collaboration takes a translational approach (rodents and humans) towards understanding biological transitions (puberty/adolescence) as a period of vulnerability for psychopathology and various physical health problems in females across the reproductive lifespan.

Our research goal is to identify novel treatment strategies for Alzheimer's disease in males and females. We are accomplishing this goal with the use of various cell lines, genetic mouse models and humans.
