Jennifer Hirsch

Psychology

As a researcher, I integrate relational context with other social and personality constructs. Some of my work broadens the conceptualization of what it means to belong by integrating literatures that crosscut psychological perspectives and theories. For instance, the development of close relationships, striving for general approbation, belonging to groups, and having minor social interactions can all influence a sense of belonging as well as interact with one another. Some of my other work emphasizes how relational processes shape people’s emotional worlds via the way emotions serve as powerful signals to the self and to others about one’s needs. The nature of our relationships shape who we express to and what we express which, in turn, shapes that relational bond.

Jeannette R. Ickovics is the Samuel and Liselotte Herman Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences and Professor of Psychology at Yale University. She served as the Dean of Faculty at Yale-NUS College from 2018-2021, and was a Visiting Professor during the 2017-2018 academic year. Yale-NUS is a partnership between Yale University and the National University of Singapore. It is a selective college of liberal arts and sciences in Asia committed to training global leaders to solve some of the world’s most complex challenges. As Dean of Faculty, she was responsible for faculty development and curriculum across the Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities. Her legacy is marked by the recruitment of world-class faculty, establishing a multi-tiered mentoring program, and building research infrastructure as well as a culture of research at the College.

At the Yale School of Public Health, Dr. Ickovics was Founding Director of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the School of Public Health (2002-2012), and Founding Director of CARE: Community Alliance for Research and Engagement as part of Yale’s inaugural Clinical and Translational Science Award (2007-2017). She was also Deputy Director for the Yale Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS where she was Director of an NIH training program for pre- and post- doctoral fellows for 15 years (now in its 22nd year). Dr. Ickovics’ research investigates the interplay of complex biomedical, behavioral, social and psychological factors that influence individual and community health. She uses this lens to examine challenges faced by those often marginalized by the health care system and by society. She has expertise in running large, scientifically rigorous clinical trials in community settings. Her community-based research – funded with more than $40 million in grants from the NIH, CDC, and private foundations – is characterized by methodological rigor and cultural sensitivity. She has held important academic and community leadership positions for the past decade, honing her leadership skills and expertise.

As Director of CARE, she was seen as a trusted and respected collaborator. Through her work at CARE, she secured New Haven as the first US site of Community Interventions for Health, a multi-national, multi-sectoral research collaborative focused on the prevention of chronic diseases worldwide. She was founding Chair of the Adherence Committee of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (NIAID), responsible for the adherence portfolio across 27 AIDS Clinical Trials Units nationwide. In addition to other grants, she has been PI on two multi-site NIH-funded randomized controlled trials on an innovative model of group prenatal care, demonstrating a 33% reduction in preterm birth and other positive health outcomes for mothers and babies. Based on these results, The United Health Foundation funded a dissemination study of group prenatal care in Detroit MI and Nashville TN, with an eye toward national scale-up. Dr. Ickovics also was PI of a public-private evaluation with Merck for Mothers (evaluating the use of community health workers for pregnant women with chronic disease), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center, and an NIH-funded randomized controlled obesity prevention trial at 12 middle schools in collaboration with the Rudd Center and the New Haven Public Schools. She is author of more than 220 peer-reviewed publications,

Yannick Jacob

Molecular, Cellular and Developmental BiologyYannick Jacob was born in Quebec, Canada. He obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees at Université de Montréal specializing in biochemistry. His M.Sc. research was performed with B. Franz Lang on the evolution of tmRNAs and their roles in regulating protein translation in bacteria. Yannick then moved to the U.S. to pursue a doctoral degree in Plant Genetics at Indiana University (Bloomington). There, he worked in the laboratory of Scott D. Michaels on the molecular genetics of flowering time in Arabidopsis and the epigenetic regulation of DNA replication. His doctoral work led to the discovery of novel chromatin-modifying proteins regulating DNA replication in plants. After his graduate studies, Yannick worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) in New York in the laboratory of Rob Martienssen. During this time, he discovered that single amino acid differences between histone variants could regulate the activity of chromatin-modifying proteins. This finding revealed a new layer of epigenetic regulation present in all eukaryotes. At the CSHL, Yannick was a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Research Associate and a recipient of post-doctoral fellowships from Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRQS). As of July 2015, Yannick is an assistant professor in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at Yale University. His research is focused on elucidating how chromatin regulates diverse processes, including DNA replication and genome engineering.Email Yannick Jacob

Michele Johnson

Radiology and Biomedical Imaging and Neurosurgery

Michele H. Johnson, MD, specializes in treating aneurysms, strokes and vascular malformations in conjunction with neurosurgery. She is director of Interventional Neuroradiology at Yale Medicine. Neurointerventional radiologists image and treat different conditions affecting the brain using minimally invasive techniques.

As a young child, Dr. Johnson grew up watching the television series Quincy, M.E., a medical mystery drama based in Los Angeles. In each episode, the main character, a medical examiner, resolved complicated scenarios using forensics and lab tests. “I remember thinking to myself, ‘This is what I want to do,’ and I planned to specialize in pathology after medical school,” Dr. Johnson says. Those plans changed later when she witnessed the finesse of a radiologist who made two diagnoses based on a single patient X-ray image.

Dr. Johnson easily recounts stories from her own diagnoses made over more than two decades at Yale. “A patient I treated when he was 8 years old for an embolism (blood clot) sent me a card in his 20s because he had just learned that I did his operation,” she says. “You know that you touch lives.”

At Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Johnson is professor of radiology and biomedical imaging, and of neurosurgery and director of interventional neuroradiology.
