Rockefeller University Council member Sarah Peter
recently funded a postdoctoral fellowship at Rockefeller.
She commented: “It was important to me to support a
woman scientist at the postdoctoral level—a point when
support is often most critical—and that it be in the
laboratory of a woman scientist like Dr. Mary Jeanne
Kreek, who is a strong role model and mentor to young
women in science.” Ms. Peter chose to name the fellow-
ship for Dorothea Dix, the renowned 19th century
reformer. Katharine M. Seip-Cammack, Ph.D., the
Dorothea Dix Postdoctoral Fellow, is studying the neuro-
biology of relapse in heroin addiction. Dr. Kreek, a
notable pioneer in the study of addictive disease, heads
the laboratory where Dr. Seip-Cammack pursues insights
that could lead to more effective treatment programs for
heroin addiction.
