Anne Etgen is currently Professor Emerita of Neuroscience, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and Obstetrics & Gynecology and Women’s Health at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. During her career at Einstein, her research on steroid hormone action in the brain was funded by NIMH, NICHD, NINDS and NIA as well as NSF. She is a two-time MERIT awardee from NIMH, served as Editor-in-Chief of the journal Hormones and Behavior from 2004-2008, and co-edited the volume “Molecular Mechanisms of Hormone Actions on Behavior”. Dr. Etgen has also mentored scientists at multiple levels of career development both locally and nationally. She contributed to Einstein’s efforts to enhance the diversity of biomedical training programs and to foster the training of faculty in the clinical and translational research arenas. Nationally, she was a member of the NINDS Neuroscience Training study section from 2000-2016 and has been on numerous other career development and fellowship review panels for NSF and NIH. She served as Director of the Graduate Division of Biomedical Sciences at Einstein from 1997-2001. She was a member of the Training Advisory Committee for the Diversity Program in Neuroscience of the American Psychological Association (APA) from 1999-2010; in 2009, the APA recognized her efforts in this area with a Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2012, she received the Society for Neuroscience’s (SfN) Bernice Grafstein Award for Mentoring. Dr. Etgen co-chaired the Professional Development Committee of the SfN from 2008-2011. At that time, she was also co-PI on a grant to SfN from the NSF, “Department Chair Training to Increase Women in Neuroscience (IWIN)”, whose goal is to improve the recruitment, retention and climate for women and minority faculty in neuroscience-related disciplines throughout the country. She has been a faculty member in MBL’s SPINES course since 2000 and currently serves on the advisory boards for the SfN’s Neuroscience Scholars Program and the University of Washington’s BRAINS (Broadening the Representation of Academic Investigators in Neuroscience). She is also a grant coach for the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN).
