During Dr. Gill's nursing undergraduate (B.S.N.) career she became interested in PTSD and trauma. She earnerd a graduate degree (M.S.) from Oregon Health and Science University in psychiatric nursing, which included clinical training in the PTSD program at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. She later earned a doctorate at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Nursing and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the NINR, during which she studied the biological mechanisms of PTSD and depression, finding central and peripheral alterations in the in-vivo functioning of both immune and endocrine systems. Dr. Gill is a CNRM clinical investigator and her research is focused on examining the biological mechanisms of PTSD and TBI related impairments in service members. Dr. Gill collaborates with investigators, from the CNRM, active duty military, veterans's administration and others to determine how biomarkers contribute to recovery from TBI.
