David O. Carpenter, MD, Top Public Health Physician, Joins NTEF'S Advisory Board
Dr. Carpenter is a world-renowned research physician, recipient of numerous awards; Leon Resnick, Jacob Javits Neuroscience Investigator, Homer N. Calver, and Albion O. Bernstein.
Dr. Carpenter received both his undergrad and medical degrees from Harvard. After graduation from medical school, Dr. Carpenter chose to study brain function rather than to practice clinical medicine. Even as a medical student he graduated with a number of first-author publications on neural control of movement. He went on to study basic mechanism of synaptic transmission, first in invertebrate neurons and then using mammalian brain slices. His recent work is entirely focused on environmental causes of human diseases.
His research interests are in alignment with those of the NTEF. He has many publications focused on study of basic mechanisms of learning and memory. He has also studied behavioral effects of environmental contaminants;
"It is a great honor for me to be invited to join the NTEF Advisory Board. I look forward to helping in any way I can to support the critical missions of NTEF."
"I am very excited to have Dr. Carpenter associating with the NTEF. Ongoing research is showing that most "psychological"
