Soo-Eun Chang, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the department of communicative sciences and disorders at Michigan State University. Dr. Chang received her master’s degree and clinical training in speech and hearing sciences at Vanderbilt University, and her doctoral degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She then continued her training as a postdoctoral research fellow at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in the Intramural Research Program of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). Dr. Chang is currently conducting an NIH-funded longitudinal investigation into brain development in children who stutter. The aims of this research are to find neural bases of early childhood stuttering and to find sex-specific brain development trajectories that lead to recovery versus persistence in stuttering. Results from this investigation are expected to contribute to finding biological markers for persistent stuttering and developing novel treatment.
