Laura K. Noll, Ph.D.

Dr. Laura K. Noll, a Junior Fellow at the Center, is an Assistant Professor in the areas of Clinical Psychology and Human Neuroscience in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Northern Arizona University [1] (NAU), where she is also an affiliated faculty member of the Southwest Health Equity Collaborative [2] and Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Ph.D. Program. As a prevention scientist working at the intersection of translational neuroscience and developmental psychology, Dr. Noll’s program of research focuses on utilizing multi-modal assessment strategies to delineate the pathways by which parents’ own history of childhood adversity impacts parental function; identifying new intervention targets that may be most sensitive to change; and translating such findings from basic science into effective intervention strategies and novel research tools to forward our ability to support at-risk families. In her role as Junior Fellow, Dr. Noll provides support for program evaluation with the Center’s Frontiers of Innovation R&D platform.
