Mar Sanchez, PhD, studies the neurobiological systems that control stress physiology and emotion regulation. Dr. Sanchez is particularly interested in the effects of early experiences, such as maternal care and social stress, on the development of those brain systems and the psychopathology and pathophysiology of anxiety and mood disorders.

Dr. Sanchez currently serves as the chair of the Committee on Animals in Research for the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.
