Subsequently, she completed this research training in the Department of Neurosciences at UCSD. Thereafter, she held a number of faculty positions at major universities supervising medical students, residents and fellows in clinical care and in research. Her research program was in an area of the Neurosciences. Her research program was funded by over a half millions dollars of grants and awards that Dr. Brugge-Hutchings received from major agencies and organizations, such as the National Institute of Aging and the National Institute on Neurological and Developmental Disorders, among other sources. Additionally, she has years of experience with clinical drug trial research and development through her work at the Food and Drug Administration. Over the years, Dr. Brugge-Hutchings has also provided direct clinical care that often included supervising residents and medical students.
