Michelle Rodrigues, PhD. I am a biological anthropologist/primatologist interested in the evolution of female social relationships and endocrinology in comparative perspective. I received my PhD from The Ohio State University, where I studied female spider monkeys to test the “tend and befriend” hypothesis, which posits that female friendship in humans evolved as a primate-wide coping mechanism to mediate stress. I followed this research with a project examining female affiliative behavior and comparative social relationships in chimpanzees and bonobos. My postdoctoral research will examine how female friendships and support networks mediate stressors experienced by adolescent girls and female scientists.

Katie Lee, PhD candidate. I am interested in bone health in women of reproductive age. I focus on how physical activity and estrogen interact to affect bone in healthy adult women. I measure both bone density (which changes slowly) and biological markers of bone turnover. Bone is broken down and rebuilt all the time in order to keep it healthy, and the bone turnover markers allow me to see how much building and dissolving is happening at the present time in women. Overall, my goal is to understand how normal women maintain their bones during their entire life. Google Scholar
