Phoebe Stapleton, Ph.D., of Rutgers University, considers herself to be an applied physiologist. That is, she studies how the body works and functions and how it responds to challenges, for better or worse. A researcher in the fields of inhalation toxicology and cardiovascular physiology, she is pioneering innovative research that tracks the movement and effects of inhaled nanoparticles within the body.
Stapleton originally pursued a career in kinesiology and exercise science, noting a passion for working with people in a healthcare context. As she continued her academic journey, she began working as a post-doctoral researcher at West Virginia University (WVU) studying vascular physiology using rodents.
