Psychology and Medicine: Translational Research on Stress, Behavior and Disease
This NIMH-funded postdoctoral program trains researchers to link basic psychological theories and research to preventing and ameliorating disease. There are two areas, and cross-cutting both areas is a consideration of disparities in mental and physical illness and the mechanisms by which they occur. The two areas are: (1) Health-risking behavior: Fellows in this area focus on developing and applying theories of risk perception, social learning, cognitive development, and risk-taking to understand and modify health-risk behaviors. (2) Stress, emotion, depression, and psychobiology: Fellows in this area focus on theories of emotion, stress, and cognitive processes as they relate to changes in neurobiology and behavior.
Core faculty include: Nancy Adler (director), Wendy Berry Mendes (co-director), Elissa Epel, Margare Kemeny, and Owen Wolkowitz
