For nearly 30 years, the funding provided by the Rappaport Foundation to physicians and researchers has allowed brilliance to flourish and breakthroughs to triumph in the areas of neurologic diseases and mental illness.

Antonia V. Seligowski, PhD, is an assistant neuroscientist in the laboratory of Kerry J. Ressler, MD, PhD. Using translational methods such as fear-potentiated startle and electroencephalography, Dr. Seligowski’s research is focused on examining physiological and neurophysiological mechanisms of PTSD. Her research also aims to identify how these mechanisms are involved in cardiovascular disease risk in PTSD, and how they are influenced by gonadal hormones.

Dr. Seligowski completed her pre-doctoral clinical psychology internship at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School. She also completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Dr. Kerry Ressler’s Neurobiology of Fear Laboratory at McLean Hospital.
