Biology, Environments & Mood Studies Lab
In the Biology, Environments & Mood Studies (BEAMS) Lab, we work to understand how social relationships affect biological processes and what that means for family mental health. We’re particularly interested in understanding depression. We analyze contributing biological processes alongside relationship and physical exposures to understand the full spectrum of depression.
By exploring and identifying the transactions between our experiences and biological processes, we hope to better understand what factors contribute to mental health problems so that we can help families in our communities.
