Adrienne K. Salm

West Virginia University, USA


Dr. Adrienne K. Salm received a dual Ph.D. in Psychology and Neuroscience from Michigan State University. Her postdoctoral training was in Neurobiology and Pharmacology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her research interests for her doctoral and postdoctoral work, as well as her early career as an independent investigator, focused on the cell biology of neuron-glial interactions under non-pathological conditions. After assuming a faculty position in the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy at West Virginia University School of Medicine in 1990, her interests broadened to include the effects of early adverse experience on the development of the limbic system, especially as it relates to enhanced susceptibility to the development of anxiety disorders. Her research has been funded by both the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Salm has served as an ad-hoc proposal reviewer for both NSF and NIH as well as other funding organizations and she routinely reviews manuscripts for an extensive list of neuroscience journals. Her teaching interests include basic graduate level neuroscience and medical neurobiology.
