Rohleder receives early career award from American Psychosomatic Society
Psychology professor accepts honor, gives talk in Miami
Rohleder accepted the award in Miami, Fla., last month, where he gave a talk on “Stress System Regulation of Inflammation.”
The award is given to academics who have contributed to the field no longer than 10 years after receiving a doctoral degree.
In his work, Rohleder tries to get a better understanding of how stress translates to mechanisms that can lead to heart disease and other health problems.
“I was hoping to get it and I’m pretty happy that I did,” Rohleder says. “For our small field, there’s still a lot of competition. This is pretty cool.”
