JACOB D. NEGREY, Ph.D.
I am a biological anthropologist and primatologist interested in disease ecology, animal behavior, and physiology. I study nonhuman primate health, focusing on environmental drivers of disease susceptibility and aging.
To address complex interactions between physiological and environmental variables, I synthesize a variety of datasets including immune biomarkers, behavioral observations, hormones, climate measurements, health assessments, viral burdens, and body temperature.
I am currently a research fellow in the Shively Lab at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, investigating environmental drivers of age-related neurobiological diseases and decline in cercopithecine monkeys.
