Have You Met Rutgers-Newark?
Dr. Denis Paré is the director of the Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience. A scholar of international renown, Paré trained at Université Laval in Quebec City, Canada, where he obtained M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in neurobiology, and then at New York University’s Medical Center, where he was a post-doctoral fellow. His research on the neuronal substrates of traumatic memories offers new hope for the treatment of anxiety disorders such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. His laboratory uses a variety of electrophysiological techniques as well as neuroanatomical and behavioral approaches to understand how memory is regulated by emotions. Since his arrival at Rutgers University in 2002, he has received more than $8.5 million in federal funding.
Paré has published two books and 124 peer-reviewed papers, including a number of highly-cited papers in the leading journals in the field such as Nature, Nature Neuroscience, Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences, and The Journal of Neuroscience. He has served on the editorial boards of The Journal of Neuroscience, The Journal of Neurophysiology, and Neuroscience.
