Bruce S. McEwen, Ph.D.
It is with profound sadness that we share the news that Dr. Bruce McEwen, a longtime member of the National Scientific Council, has died. McEwen’s ground-breaking research and wide-ranging knowledge has contributed enormously to the work of the Council and to the broader understanding of the effects of stress on lifelong development. He will be greatly missed.
Read a tribute to Dr. McEwen from his home institution, Rockefeller University.
