Stress-Lab-Group-PhotoAbout Our Research Program

As part of the Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research, directed by Lisa Christian, PhD, the Stress, Behavioral Immunology, and Health Disparities Lab examines how exposures to chronic stress, including discrimination due to racial and/or sexual minority status, affect physical health and mental well-being. Our studies use psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) research approaches to examine how stress “gets under the skin” to impact health by affecting the neuroendocrine and immune systems.
