Nicole Perez's additional information

Nicole Perez is a PhD candidate at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing.  She received her BSN and MSN from the University of Florida and completed a fellowship in nursing leadership at the University of Florida Health.  

As a board certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, Nicole has worked with a variety of populations, particularly adults with mood disorders and comorbid medical issues.  She currently practices and provides psychiatric care to homeless women in a setting integrated with primary care. 

Her broad research interests include examining the biological underpinnings and consequences of depressive symptoms in chronic conditions.  She is specifically interested in how depressive symptoms relate to epigenomics in persons with cardiometabolic conditions, and how expanding this knowledge may be used to inform novel strategies for prevention and management.  She has received the Barbara Jonas Psychiatric Mental Health Scholar award, and her dissertation work is currently funded through the NYU Langone School of Medicine Clinical and Translational Science Institute predoctoral fellowship program.
