Congratulations Kim Huhman of the Neuroscience Institute for being named Distinguished University Professor in recognition of her outstanding work in research, teaching, and mentoring students in research.
Most humans experience social stress as the result of exposure to bullying, abuse or conflict in school, home and the workplace. Huhman’s research is on how exposure to social stress causes changes in brain and behavior.
