Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Hannah Atkins provides diagnostic and investigative veterinary pathology services to Penn State researchers and associated contracted research organizations. She has experience in immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, flow cytometry and digital histomorphometry techniques, as well as experimental design, grant writing and statistical analysis. Dr. Atkins has collaborated on several National Institutes of Health and Department of Defense grants as well as numerous pilot studies and projects investigating topics from artificial organs to cancer. 

While completing her postdoctoral fellowship, Dr. Atkins worked with animal models of women's health, irradiation, cardiovascular disease, cancer and neonatal vaccines. Her doctoral dissertation focused on women’s health and elucidated the immunometabolic mechanisms within endometriosis tissue using cell culture and non-human primate models. 

Her research continues to focus on endometriosis mitochondrial metabolism and non-hormonal, anti-inflammatory treatments.
