Dr. Vasiliki Michopoulos is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Emory University's School of Medicine. She is also an Affiliate Research Scientist at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center. Dr. Michopoulos' translational research is focused on understanding how adverse social experience, including chronic stress and trauma exposure, results in a number of adverse mental outcomes and co-morbid physical health conditions. She is particularly interested in understanding why females are more at risk for these stress-induced conditions than males. She serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America.
