Dr. Wong-Goodrich received an MA in Experimental Psychology from California State University, Fullerton, a Ph.D. in Psychology & Neuroscience from Duke University, and a postdoctoral fellowship in behavioral neuroscience from the National Institute of Mental Health. Her research and publications have focused on various animal models to investigate the regulation and neural substrates of learning and memory in both healthy and diseased states, with a specific emphasis on hippocampal function and plasticity. Prior to joining Iona College, she worked in the biotech/pharmaceutical industry as a scientist, medical science liaison, and medical writer supporting the development of, and medical affairs initiatives for, therapies in areas of neuroscience as well as psychiatry. Dr. Wong-Goodrich’s current research interests include extending animal models of learning and memory to humans, with a specific interest in the functional contribution of adult hippocampal neurogenesis to human memory.
