Tara Carlisle was born and raised in Grand Junction, Colorado. As a pre-medical student at the University of Colorado-Boulder, she worked with researcher and educator William B. Wood, PhD, in his C. elegans developmental biology lab. She joined the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus (CU Anschutz) and completed a PhD in the Neuroscience program, where she studied activity-dependent processes in the developing spinal cord of Danio rerio (zebrafish) with Angeles B. Ribera, PhD. Dr. Carlisle completed an Internal Medicine internship with CU Anschutz and then a Neurology Residency with Partners (Massachusetts General/Brigham & Women’s/Harvard) Neurology in Boston, MA. She completed her Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry Fellowship at CU Anschutz, and has a particular interest in cognitive reserve and cognitive resiliency. Outside of work, Dr. Carlisle enjoys crafting (i.e., visual art, furniture refinishing/refurbishment, making jewelry), outdoor activities (i.e., camping, hiking, skiing), playing board games, trying new foods, and spending time with her husband and son.
