Research

Division faculty have particular research interests in the biobehavioral sequelae of exposures to stress, adversity and poverty in childhood and in the individual differences in children’s biological responses to such exposures. As the newest division within the Department of Pediatrics, we work closely and collaboratively with research colleagues within the disciplines of child psychiatry, child neurology, and clinical and neuro-psychology, on projects ranging from improving pediatric clinical care to understanding the broader distributions of behavioral and developmental morbidities within human populations.
