Angela Pierce, DC, PhD


Angela N. Pierce, DC, PhD is the Director of COM Preclinical Assessment at Kansas City University. She completed her PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC), studying the molecular mechanisms and neurobiology of chronic pelvic pain in association with stress axis dysregulation following early life trauma. She is also a board-certified chiropractor, graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic with research interests in chronic pain management.

As an expert in the neurobiological adaptation to adverse childhood events, Dr. Pierce is interested in wider public health aspects, policy, and health systems specifically associated with childhood development, mental health and overall wellness. Her current research investigates mechanisms of post-operative depression, regulation of the physiological stress axis, and reward neurobiology.

Dr. Pierce received her undergraduate degrees in Biochemistry (B.S.) and Spanish (B.A.) from Missouri Southern State University. In her spare time, she enjoys racing triathlon, writing and hiking with her family.
